signs: Creative Growth

Creative Growth
Art Center

Not far from the YMCA is the Creative Growth Art Center. I didn't know anything about it when I stumbled on the sign, but checked it out later. In the words of their website:
Creative Growth Art Center serves adult artists with developmental, mental and physical disabilities, providing a stimulating environment for artistic instruction, gallery promotion and personal expression.
Today I read on The Oakbook about a fundraiser they're having. Creative Growth opens its Summer of Love show on Thursday. Following the opening, Creative Growth will host a fundraiser at Pizzaiolo with guest artists David Byrne (yeah, David Byrne from the Talking Heads) and Cindy Sherman. Read more about it on The Oakbook.
