1 in 5 people experience mental health illnesses according to the National Institute of health. The Traverse Area District Library is hosting the 13th annual Art of Recovery: The Human Journey Show. This art show is giving local artists who are experiencing or have experienced mental illness a platform to share their art and creativity.
Chynthia Petersen with Northern Lakes Community Mental Health shares, “Many of these artists feel this is a way to show their art and tell their story. They might have been dealing with depression and anxiety or schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. We’re coming forward and celebrating their work.”
The reception will be taking place Thursday, November 7th from 3:30-6:30 PM in the McGuire room. The show will continue through November 25.
