Field Trip to see William Scott at SFMOMA

Congratulations to William Scott, Core ArtSeed Participant since 2002, for being such a joyful celebrity during our field trip to see his and his Creative Growth associates art at SFMOMA. It was an evening of music, drinks, and merriment for the opening of Creative Growth: The House That Art Built.

This exhibition celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Creative Growth, a non-profit organization based in Oakland, California that advances the inclusion of artists with developmental disabilities in contemporary art and strengthens community by providing a supportive studio environment and gallery representation.

William’s Bay Area Walls mural commission and exhibition, Creative Growth: The House That Art Built, at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, runs April 4 – October 6, 2024
