Our Mission*

We are a group of curated artists with the shared and rare feature of "accidental genius."

 

Our artists are those who appear to have sudden or acquired savantism as defined by  Darold Treffert, M.D.  in his work with savant syndrome. 

Our mission is to provide a platform for other savants or CNS-injured people to find hope, promise, and satisfaction in their lives. We seek to educate and inspire by showcasing artwork from a non-neurotypical curated group of vibrant voices from around the globe.

 

Our goal is to share camaraderie as artists who exhibit this rare gift and to foster collaborations with researchers, galleries, and interested outlets as opportunities present themselves. 

* The mission statement of our Collective has been guided directly by Dr. Darold Treffert.
