Serving the community with style ...

Marc by Marc Jacobs has partnered with the Creative Growth Art Center, the world’s oldest and largest art studio that works with disabled adult artists, for its Jacobs by Marc Jacobs line. The project features wallets, totes, and T-shirts adorned with images of artwork painted by Creative Growth Art Center artists Louis Estape, Dan Miller, William Scott, and Gerone Spruill.

Tom di Maria, the Creative Growth Director, says the partnership with Marc Jacobs offers an amazing foundation for future Creative Growth’s projects. He says, “It is gratifying to see the recognition that Marc Jacobs is providing for artists with disabilities and how these artists are increasingly being recognized as leading contributors to the art our time.” Prices range from $19-$35, and 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Creative Growth Art Center.
