The Global Artists’ Creative Collaboration for Empowerment-GACCE in collaboration with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, San Jose, CA. will present an art exhibit entitled “Creative Collaborations” at its Jennifer & Philip DiNapoli Gallery on September 7 to 28, 2018.

Reception and opening will be held on
September 7, 2018 at 2:00P.M.

The art exhibit will feature the “coming together” of artists from different cultural backgrounds as a beginning of cultural integration. The artists combined their own creative efforts, talents, and insights to produce a single collaborated artwork. Each artwork and canvas will express multiple incorporated ideas that will reveal the power of joint actions which are greater than a single action taken separately. However, individual artworks will be positioned alongside the collaborated artworks in order to highlight the distinctive styles of the artists. This exhibit will show its audience that working together is a formula for success and empowerment. Similarly, it will convey the message that good team building will serve not just as inspiration for others, but also a powerful indicator that will foster team development and integration.

This art exhibit will be a gallery of multiple subjects that will be of interest to all people from different walks of life. The wisdom of this art exhibit will be an important inspiration to many that will teach them to understand that collaboration is what makes a team work, an organization work, a society work, and a civilization work regardless of one’s cultural origin. It will be a grand art exhibit of “beautiful minds converging together”.

Participating artists are the following: Anna Kim-Korean-American, Ayelet Galon-Israeli-American, Ayesha Samdani- Pakistani-American, Bernadette EscalonaCooper-Filipino-American, Mel Vera Cruz- Filipino-American, Michelangelo Mayo- Filipino-American, Roberto Carlos-Filipino-Canadian and Shiva Nourpouri-Iranian-American. In collaboration, our efforts are strengthened.

As Helen Keller said: "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
