Events: Art Changes Lives (SF,CA & MN)

Two upcoming events I thought I'd sandwich in this single post because they both celebrate the same worthy message: Art changes lives.

In San Francisco: The wonderful organization Creativity Explored is holding its annual fundraiser. This year's theme, "ART CHANGES LIVES 2010: COLOR," takes its title from CE’s positive impact on the lives of artists with developmental disabilities working in their studios, and the community of people connected to the organization. This eccentric, diverse, spirited, must-attend fundraising event attracts 400 guests annually and is hosted this year at the beautiful Foreign Cinema restaurant in San Francisco's Mission district. Enjoy great food, wine, stunning atmosphere, and over 80 videos of Creativity Explored artists working in the studios. Chromatic attire encouraged since the theme is “Celebrating Color.”

In MN: Textile Center opens ART: Healing Lives on April 28 at Textile Center's Joan Mondale Gallery. ART: Healing Lives is an international, juried exhibition part of Arts and Health Community Celebration hosted by the Midwest Arts in Healthcare Network (MAIHN). This compelling exhibition showcases mixed-media fiber works from artists who have transcended health related hardships through the healing powers of art. Laborious and often painful, yet meditative and ultimately regenerating, the work of these twenty-six artists serves as a spirit of hope to those traveling a similar road.
