Melanie Rothschild is all about creative growth. You’ve heard my conversations with the wonderful and inspiring Melanie here, here and here. In this new conversation, we talk about three art centers in Northern California– Creative Growth Art Center in Berkeley, Creativity Explored in San Francisco, and NIAD (National Institute of Art & Disabilities) in Richmond–established to provide studio space for developmentally disabled adults.
The centers joined together last summer for Create, an exhibit at the Berkeley Art Museum, and it was so inspiring Melanie visited each of the centers.
