A Project for Creative Growth’s 40th Anniversary
Organized by Matthew Higgs

July 10 – August 15, 2014

Join Creative Growth in celebrating our 40th Anniversary with a very special exhibition!

Five celebrated contemporary artists, Anne Collier, Trisha Donnelly,  Chris Johanson, Nate Lowman and Laura Owens were invited by Curator Matthew Higgs to create a new screen print as part of a project to celebrate forty years of Creative Growth Art Center. Produced in editions of fifty, the prints were delivered to Creative Growth’s Oakland studio where over 100 Creative Growth artists were invited to work on top of the printed images to create new art works. Not exactly ‘collaborations’ in any conventional sense; the resulting co-authored works might instead be thought of as ‘collisions’ between often very different aesthetic sensibilities and approaches.

Over 200 of these ‘collisions’ will be on view and for sale, so come check out these sensational works, then help us celebrate our 40th birthday with cake and ice cream, ‘strong’ punch, live music, and more!

Exhibition Opening:
Thursday, July 10
Members’ Preview: 11AM – 2PM
Main Event: 5PM – 8PM
Live Music by Steven Emerson
Cake, ice cream + punch
