Flower Power is Elana Cooper’s first solo exhibition at Creativity Explored. It’s a fitting title for an artist who has made a lot out of her love of flowers. The term “flower power” was coined by Allen Ginsberg during the anti-war movement in the ‘60s. Ginsberg encouraged protestors to bring masses of flowers to the front lines as a visual spectacle and hand them out to everyone.
I can’t help but think of the Creativity Explored community when I look at the flowers all together, each of us with our distinct personalities, shapes and sizes are reflected somehow in her flowers…In her art practice, she combines this toughness with tenderness, curiosity and joy. And that’s what this exhibition is about, Elana’s love and joy.
—Eric Larson, Teaching Artist and Curator of Flower Power
