FRIDAY FOLIO: The Creative Art Growth Center


PAPER contributed to the madness that was Art Basel Miami by teaming up with Zune Arts for "ART. (ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AT IT)," an exhibit held in the PAPER Tent at the Raleigh. The show featured works by trendy, of-the-moment artists as interpreted by artists from the Creative Growth Art Center. According to exhibit curator (and PAPER editor and publisher) Kim Hastreiter:

"I thought it would be fun to stick a proverbial needle in the huge balloon that has become the ever-inflating hyped art frenzy that's so perfectly personified here this week at Miami's Art Basel Fair. And so, I invited the extraordinary artists at Creative Growth Art Center to level the field and reinterpret iconic works by some of the hottest artists of this moment. By injecting the natural honesty, purity, inspiration, and levity of these artists work into the insanity that goes on here this week, I wanted to invite art world "insiders" here in Miami this week to step outside and throw preconceived notions aside for a moment and look at art in a different way."

Pictured below are selections from the exhibit.

The Creative Growth Art Center located in Oakland, California, serves physically, mentally and developmentally disabled adult artists, providing a stimulating environment for artistic instruction, gallery promotion and personal expression.
