Seeking innovative contemporary artwork related to substance abuse, addiction, recovery, mental illness, etc. We welcome artists of all backgrounds and working in any media to give insight, commentary, or reflection on this topic. This exhibition seeks to confront these pertinent issues and their subsequent effect on families, friends, and communities. We hope to provide a supportive and inclusive environment that can bring awareness and promote understanding about substance abuse and mental illness within the community.
