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 past 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 fundraiser will be held at the historic Oakland Scottish Rite Center. A Pop-Up Shop opens after the runway show, where guests can take home looks direct from the runway. Dinner following the Pop-Up is a VIP experience with live music by Thao Nguyen of Thao and The Get Down Stay Down. This year, renowned Bay Area chef Cal Peternell (NY Times Best-Selling Cookbook Author, former long-time Chef at Chez Panisse) will craft a menu for the evening with snacks by Chris Kronner of KronnerBurger, drinks by St. George Spirits, dessert by Tanya Holland of Brown Sugar Kitchen, and ice cream by Humphry Slocombe. The Beyond Trend Host Committee includes Kim Hastreiter, Paper Magazine editor-in-chief, and Todd Waterbury, Target’s Chief Creative Officer. We would like to extend a special thanks to our Gold Sponsor Method.

Runway event tickets are $100 – $225.
Reservations for dinner start at $500.
