Burien Community Center hosting ‘No Boundaries’ exhibit through end of Sept.
The Burien Community Center will be hosting the ‘No Boundaries 2013, Beginnings & Beyond’ exhibit until the end of September in its lobby.
Here’s the full lowdown:
In early 20th century, German doctor Hans Prinzhorn, and French artist Jean Dubuffet opened the eyes of the art world by studying the art of psychiatric patients. A series of following art movements-abstraction, fauvism, cubism and dada-celebrated the ideas of artistic outcasts and underrepresented groups. In turn, Prinzhorn and Dubuffet’s original ‘Outsider Art’ genre expanded to include a broader spectrum of artists, and moved to the forefront of international attention.
No Boundaries originated 21 years ago when Christine Burgoyne, with Very Special Arts of Washington, organized and curated the first Northwest touring exhibit for artists with disabilities. Very Special Arts of Washington Alumnus Shariana Mundi and Robert Frey are continuing the tradition with this traveling exhibit, thanks to the generous support of 4Culture in honoring and supporting artists with disabilities, both Outsider artists and professional artists of many years. Many of the works you will see were created by students in art classes at the Moshier Community Art Center, taught by Shariana Mundi.
The Burien Community Center is located at 14700 6th Ave SW, and is open Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 8 p.m., and Fridays 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
