Event Description
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LOCATION HAS BEEN UPDATED

On October 9, the Hallie Ford Museum of Art (HFMA) is pleased to present a lecture with Tom di Maria, the Director of Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland, Calif. In his lecture From the Margins to the Mainstream: Artists with Disabilities in Contemporary Art, di Maria will provide a brief history of Outsider Art and discuss the development and growing acceptance of work by artists with disabilities. This lecture is offered in conjunction with the Russell Childers: Oregon Outsider exhibition on view now through Oct. 23 at the HFMA. The lecture will begin at 3 p.m. in the Paulus Lecture Hall at the Willamette University College of Law, and will be preceded by a guided gallery talk of the Russell Childers: Oregon Outsider exhibition at 2 p.m. in the museum’s Study Gallery. 

Learn more about the creation and progress of Creative Growth Art Center (CGAC) which opened in 1974 and has played a significant role in increasing public interest in the artistic capabilities and achievements of people with disabilities. In his lecture, di Maria will talk about CGAC's notable artists, including Judith Scott, and how we might come to appreciate the work of Russell Childers (1915-1998) in relation to our evolving view of artists with disabilities.
