Creative Growth Art Center presents Beyond Trend, a runway event and fundraiser celebrating the Oakland-based studio and gallery for artists with disabilities. This much anticipated and historically sold-out event provides critical annual support to Creative Growth’s visionary community of over 150 artists.
For more than four decades, Creative Growth has advanced the lives of people with disabilities by fostering the aesthetic development and artistic careers of hundreds of artists, placing their work in the world’s leading galleries and institutions, including: the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and, this year, the International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale.
Beyond Trend presents a one-of-a-kind fashion performance featuring artists from the Creative Growth studio and their designs alongside a social event weaving together art, fashion, music, and Bay Area cuisine. The Beyond Trend Host Committee includes Kim Hastreiter, Paper Magazine editor-in-chief, and Stella Ishii, Founder and CEO of The News Inc. A private seated dinner by Paula LeDuc Fine Catering and an exclusive concert by the Oakland-based, Indie-pop tUnE-yArDs will follow the main runway event. We would like to extend a special thanks to our Platinum Presenting Sponsor Target and our Gold Sponsor Method.
