Beyond Trend SUCCESS | Thank You For Your Support!

The Creative Growth 6th annual Beyond Trend Runway Event & Fundraiser was a great success! With your support we exceeded our fundraising goal on the night of the event while collectively celebrating the visionary style of the Creative Growth artists on the runway!

If you missed Beyond Trend in person this year, there is still time to contribute to over 150 artists with disabilities and their studio program. Every dollar we raise during this time goes towards our Beyond Trend goal. We look forward to seeing you in the Creative Growth gallery very soon or if you are out of town please find our limited edition artist merchandise online here.  Thank you for becoming part of the Creative Growth community–your support makes all of this work possible.
