Now in its 30th year Creativity Explored continues to provide artists with developmental disabilities assistance to create, exhibit, and sell their art. Tonight you’ll get a more intimate look at the lives of a few of the artists that create incredible art in spite of the obstacles surrounding them. Ben Wu's short documentary, Cross Your Eyes Keep Them Wide, subtly captures the ebb and flow of life inside the 16th street studio. CLOWN offers a stark and decidedly unsentimentalized portrait of Creativity Explored artist and clown, Gordon Shepard. Michael Benard Loggins (artist and author of Fears of Your Life) is the focus of the poetic Life Itself. Also screening: Short animation films by Creativity Explored artists.
