Pomona, CA– Creative magic happens when an artist becomes deeply involved in the technical aspects of the art form in which they are working. Creative advancements can appear as flashes of insight or even “happy accidents.” They happen all the time, and often when least expected. Add a creative partner (or two) to the mix and you’ve got enough knowledge and experience to spark a multitude of creative advancements to power a successful partnership.
“50/50”explores this transformation through collaboration by asking artists to create work that is engaging, multisensory and collaborative. It is a show that focuses on the creative of collaboration between educator and creator. We invite you to view, engage and collaborate with the art during the opening and throughout the month of September and October.
