The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross made the MetroWest Daily News’ list of the 10 most memorable arts exhibits of the year. The Cantor Gallery was in good company, featured alongside renowned museums including the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Institute of Contemporary Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
“By exhibiting work made by artists with profound developmental disabilities, the Cantor Gallery of the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester invited visitors to consider the very nature of creativity,” wrote art critic Chris Bergeron. “Organized by three San Francisco art centers, the two-part exhibit “Create” encouraged viewers to recognize how the artists on display possessed special gifts that allowed them to make such striking art. Looking at imaginative by people with Down syndrome and bipolar disorder and others who’ve been institutionalized for decades forced viewers to rethink their views about people with disabilities. No other exhibit in the region did that better than ‘Create.’”
