Event Details

Exhibition October 8 – November 22, 2015; Opening reception Thurs, Oct 8, 7-9pm

Creativity Explored, the premier non profit visual art gallery and studio for artists with developmental disabilities, is pleased to announce the opening of Dance Party!, a group exhibition that captures the vibrant spirit and unique visual culture surrounding dance as a social activity. In this lively exhibition curated by Creativity Explored Visual Arts Instructors Leeza Doreian and Mara Poliak, a selection of artists visually interpret dance as a communal experience everywhere it takes place (on television, in movies, on YouTube, and even in the Creativity Explored art studio).

The impetus for this exhibition is Dance Fridays, which takes place at our main studio in the Mission District of San Francisco. Dance Fridays are a time where Creativity Explored artists and staff come together for a dance party every Friday afternoon. Curators Poliak and Doreian were inspired by the power dance has for participants to connect and communicate with one another through physical expression. The curator’s interest evolved further than the physical act of dancing to encompass dance spaces, dance clothing and costumes, ephemera, and ritual and community dance.

In Dance Party!, Creativity Explored artists visually communicate their experiences and personal connections to all aspects of dance. Don’t miss a beat and be sure to see this exhibition of over 30 paintings, drawings, video, and installation art.

Participating artists: Ian Adams, Peter Cordova, Charles Cruz, Christina Marie Fong, Daniel Green, Joseph “JD” Green, Hamilton Brian Hayes, Jay Herndon, Valerie Jenkins, Kaocrew Kakabutra, Makeya Kaiser, Gabriel Maduena, James Miles, James Montgomery, Sara O’Sullivan, Musette Perkins, Paul Pulizzano, Yolanda Ramirez, Emma Reyes, Ethel Revita, Ka Wai Shiu, Kate Thompson, and Kathy Wen.
