Innovative Art Exhibition Celebrates Unique CollaborationsArts & Culture Artists with and without autism share perspectives on community
Local author, Andrea Moriarty, today announced the launch of the Radical Inclusion Traveling Art Exhibition with generous support from Synergy Arts Foundation and Revision Creative Arts Program. This art exhibition features collaborative artwork by six young artists with autism and six professional artists.
On display until December 2020
The exhibition will be on display at multiple locations across San Diego County from August 2019 to December 2020. Putting into practice the call to action from Moriarty’s recent book, “Radical Inclusion: What I Learned About Risk, Humility, and Kindness from My Son with Autism,” it showcases the social impact of open dialogue, integrated communities, and inclusion.
“Collaborating on a shared passion–whether it is art, music, or baking–brings out our best selves,” said Moriarty. “I hope viewers will see the artwork, hear the stories behind each piece, and be inspired to invite people from the margins of culture into the limelight. That is radical inclusion!”
A collaborative project celebrating unique perspectives
The artists in Radical Inclusion are matched in pairs to create a collaborative project that celebrates unique perspectives and mutual learning by recognizing the amazing narratives that are produced when different worlds meet to speak the same language. The project surrounds the theme of “community” as a stepping stone for a collective exchange of ideas and experiences.
Synergy Arts Foundation, based in Solana Beach, supports and nurtures local artists and arts organizations of all disciplines in crisis by providing financial assistance. They pioneer programs in arts education for at-risk populations, arts for healing, community arts, and specific international and national art projects.
The mission at Revision Creative Arts Program, located in San Diego’s Old Town, is to provide inclusive access to art, culture, social practice and environmental education through the framework of a creative workspace.
The Radical Inclusion Traveling Art Exhibition will be on display at Sophie’s Gallery Kensington, Revision Gallery in Old Town, the Foundry Gallery in Carlsbad, Culture Brewery Encinitas, City Hall in Solana Beach, The Church at Rancho Bernardo, and Lux Art Institute in Encinitas.
