Verge Center for the Arts is pleased to present the exhibit Rhodascope: Scribbles, Smears, and the Universal Language of Children According to Rhoda Kellogg.
Brian Belott, the Brooklyn-based artist and child art enthusiast, came across Rhoda Kellogg’s name again and again in the course of his open-ended research. How could one person, he wondered, be so central to a field of study and yet relatively under-recognized? Kellogg (1898–1987) was an early childhood scholar, educator, author, and activist who was in a near-continual state of processing child art for six decades, most significantly as the designer and director of the Phoebe A. Hearst Preschool, which still operates in San Francisco.
Curated by Jordan Stein and Lindsey White, RHODASCOPE brings together approximately 200 artworks from the Rhoda Kellogg International Child Art Collection of the Golden Gate Kindergarten Association / Phoebe Hearst Preschool selected by Brian Belott; Belott’s own child art “forgery” paintings; and several of Kellogg’s original artworks, produced during her final years.

Gallery Hours: Thursday – Saturday 11am – 5pm, Sunday 12pm – 5pm
