Creativity's Hearts and Minds

By Published on .

Creativity is proud to announce our inaugural artists event, Hearts and Minds, to be held in New York on September 25, 2008. Hearts and Minds will be our annual celebration of the accomplished fine artists, designers and illustrators who inspire our industry and propel it.

The Hearts and Minds Gallery will also be a showcase for brilliant non-commercial artwork by some of our favorite industry folks--one side of their creative talents you don't often get to see, but should.
