Reclaiming: A New Asylum at Creative Growth
Creative Growth kicks off 2014 with the next installment of its Marking 40 exhibition series, a year-long celebration of the Oakland Center's 40th anniversary (1974-2014). Reclaiming: A New Asylum includes rarely seen works by artists for whom a history of institutionalization informs private visions and an intent to communicate initiated far outside popular culture or the contemporary art world. This exhibition highlights the early days of the Creative Growth studio, and serves as an introduction to this visionary environment that encouraged creativity above all else.
