      Five and Two Others Curated by Mildred Howard

      Creativity Explored, San Francisco's premier nonprofit art center for adult artists with developmental disabilities, is proud to present Five and Two Others curated by Mildred Howard. The exhibition is on view March 14 through May 2, 2019. Join us for the opening reception on Thursday, March 14 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. From 6:00 to 7:00 pm Creativity Explored donors will enjoy a VIP Preview of the exhibition plus a Meet & Greet with show curator Mildred Howard. *To become a donor and join the VIP festivities, please visit creativityexplored.org

      Acclaimed artist Mildred Howard believes, "Art is art, regardless of who makes it."

      In this forthcoming group show, Howard presents selected artworks of five Creativity Explored artists, Vincent Jackson, James Miles, Selene Perez, Evelyn Reyes, and Lance Rivers, alongside two contemporary Bay Area artists, Oliver Lee Jackson and John Moore. Addressing inequities in curatorial practices in the art world, Howard aims to open up a dialogue about artistic representation by presenting groupings of small format works by artists with and without developmental disabilities, with an egalitarian vision and exceptional grace.

      Mildred Howard worked as a Visual Arts Instructor in the Creativity Explored studio in the late 1980s during the formative years of the organization. Since that time, Howard has become known for her activism as well as intricately designed installations uncovering what is seldom seen in the realm of art history with a critical focus on race, social justice, and identity.

      In returning to the Creativity Explored studio, Howard was struck by the incredible talent and vision of artists with developmental disabilities, and thus, the lack of representation of these artists in the world of contemporary art. Working with the exhibitions team at Creativity Explored, Howard hand-selected small works of five artists, each representing unique visual vocabularies, artistic styles, and personal backgrounds.

      In an effort to level the playing the field, Howard has included works by John Moore and Oliver Lee Jackson to share walls of the Creativity Explored gallery, a space typically reserved for artwork produced in the studios.

      At the opening reception, Creativity Explored will release a new catalog of Five and Two Others, memorializing Howard's activist vision and this groundbreaking exhibition. The catalog will include additional artwork not featured on display as well as a curatorial statement from Howard outlining her process and vision.
