Thaumatrope is a group show curated by Elonda Billera Norris, Janice Gomez and Fatima Hoang, founders of Summercamp’s ProjectProject, an artist run space based in Los Angeles. For this third installment of First Street Gallery’s Other Eyes Guest Curator Program, they have invited artists to make work in response to, or in collaboration with, First Street Gallery artists for an exhibition which offers a blend of style, process and inspiration that reflects the wide range of this eclectic group of artists.

First Street Gallery Art Center is an exhibition resource and arts management center for adults with developmental disabilities in Claremont, California. It is a unique art center of the Tierra del Sol Foundation founded on the proposition that human potential for creativity and artistic expression is not limited by physical or intellectual challenges. Through cultivation of artistic expression, people with significant challenges can develop creatively and make important contributions to the cultural and economic life of their communities.
