Creative Growth

The Outsider Art Fair to which New York City is being treated through this weekend has been owned and managed for some years now by Andrew Edlin. Back on the Bowery, in Mr. Edlin’s own gallery, there is a remarkable exhibition of the artist Dan Miller. Four years ago, an exhibition at the Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut, curated by Matthew Higgs,¬† introduced two remarkable artists associated with Creative Growth, a center in Oakland California that works with the educationally disabled. Those two individuals, Judith Scott and Dan Miller, were featured to spectacular effect at the Venice Biennale last summer. In 2015, Miller, who was born in 1961, received the Wyn Newhouse award, an annual grant for artists with disabilities. This exhibition marks¬†his New York debut. See THE LIST for full details
