Creative Growth Book : From the Outside to the Inside: Artists With Disabilities Today (Paperback) (Tom
about this item
The Creative Growth Book celebrates the first 40 years of the titular Oakland, California, art center for people with disabilities. As the world’s oldest and largest center of its kind, Creative Growth Art Center’s history mirrors the evolution of a growing disability rights movement and the increased interest in self-taught art. This visual history looks at the center’s start and how its artists evolved from being seen as people with disabilities to outsider artists—and, increasingly, as acclaimed contemporary artists—and at its current international design, museum, and fashion partnerships.
