Celebrating a Vision: Art and Disability
For more than three decades, Oakland’s Creative Growth Art Center, Richmond’s NIAD Art Center, and San Francisco’s Creativity Explored have provided stimulating and supportive environments for artists with disabilities in the San Francisco Bay Area. The success of these models has inspired the creation of more than forty similar centers nationwide. Celebrating a Vision: Art and Disability is composed of artists from each of the three organizations and features artwork ranging from paintings, drawings, and ceramic sculpture to textile art, collage, and assemblage. Together, the artwork demonstrates the extraordinary creativity of its makers and confirms the organizations’ fundamental belief in art as an essential and enriching activity.
Celebrating a Vision: Art and Disability is located in Terminal 3, Boarding Area F from March 12, 2016 to December 4, 2016. The exhibition is located post-security and is only accessible to passengers ticketed for travel through Terminal 3. There is no charge to view the exhibition.

SFO Museum was established by the Airport Commission in 1980 for the purposes of humanizing the Airport environment, providing visibility for the unique cultural life of San Francisco, and providing educational services for the traveling public. The Museum was granted initial accreditation from the American Association of Museums in 1999, reaccredited in 2005, and has the distinction of being the only accredited museum in an airport. Today, SFO Museum features approximately twenty galleries throughout the Airport terminals displaying a rotating schedule of art, history, science, and cultural exhibitions, as well as the San Francisco Airport Commission Aviation Library and Louis A. Turpen Aviation Museum, a permanent collection dedicated to the history of commercial aviation.
