Say My Name, Say My Name 

Wednesday, Nov 10 2010
Many people were introduced to Creativity Explored when resident artist Michael Bernard Loggins tumbled into the limelight in 2003 with his well-received book, Fears of Your Life. The book chronicles the various anxieties, fears, and observations of Loggins, a developmentally disabled artist, through text and drawings, creating a collection that's painfully familiar to all of us. His later appearance on National Public Radio supercharmer This American Life brought a new level of attention to the developmentally disabled artists of Creativity Explored as well as their contributions to the art world. Tonight’s Porchlight show, “Don't Call Me Retard,” a group of artists and staff from Creativity Explored who share stories and short videos they’ve created. On hand are artists Whitman Donaldson and Thomas Pringle, studio managers Francis Kohler and Paul Moshammer, former volunteer Katie Gorman, and gallery assistant Will Skinker. Porchlight is hosted by the dry wit of Arline Klatte and the athletic prowess of Beth Lisick, who's always likely to toss out the splits or some sort of heel-pounding dance for emphasis. Marc Capelle is on piano, keeping storytellers concise and the audience riveted.
