Menstuff® has compiled the following information about Creativity Explored in San Francisco, CA.
Creativity Explored is an uncommon place, filled with color, vibrance, and joy. A visit to our two centers reveals over 100 artists working both collaboratively and individually in large, light-filled studios in the heart of the Mission district. The floors are splattered with paint, ficus trees arch gracefully toward the high ceilings, and the walls are covered with art of every medium.
Creativity Explored member artists come from diverse backgrounds and bring with them a wide variety and range of experience, ability, and sensibilities. Some of our artists just turned 20 years old, and some of our artists are in their eighties. Some have lived a life of previous isolation or institutionalization, while some have lived their entire lives with their families in a supportive and accepting environment. Many of our member artists speak different languages, or do not speak, and are unable to communicate with each other using spoken language. At Creativity Explored, visual art is language everyone can use to share culture, to share experience, and to share feelings.
At Creativity Explored, uncensored self-expression is both encouraged and celebrated. The result is art that is fresh, exciting, and innovative. We invite you to share our collective experience, to participate in our community, and to benefit from the significant contributions made by artists with disabilities to the cultural life of the broader community. Our common thread is the basic need to express self, and the tapestry we weave using art is a strong, durable community rich in color, form, and context. We invite you to become a part of our community.
