Creative Growth is the oldest and largest nonprofit visual art center in the country, providing arts programs to adults with developmental, physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. In collaboration with The News Showroom and The Kneornschild family, Creative Growth for Everybody was born- with a purpose to provide artists at Creative Growth the opportunity to showcase and distribute their works to a broader audience, particularly to the fashion industry. The first series, launching Spring 2010, consists of 15 pieces of artwork printed on men's and women's cotton tees and dresses. Creative Growth for Everybody is a long-term collaborative effort that will continually inspire, excite and open eyes.
