Access HAPI Art Exhibit: Celebrating Arts Access for Tennesseans in Mental Health and Addiction Recovery
October 15, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Access HAPI art exhibit features fifty original artworks created by Healing Arts Project, Inc. (HAPI) program participants. The exhibit celebrates over a decade of HAPI providing arts access to hundreds of Tennesseans in mental health and addiction recovery as well as the fiftieth anniversary of the Tennessee Arts Commission. Featured artwork in the Access HAPI exhibit was created by participants at each of the fourteen peer centers across Middle Tennessee that partner with HAPI*. Their artistic expressions reflect their wide cultural diversity and add to the contributions of artistic understanding in their communities. The Access HAPI art exhibit will be on display after HAPI’s annual Service of Hope, an event where those in recovery, their families, and the community stand in solidarity to reflect on challenges, triumphs, and artistic expression.
Healing Arts Project, Inc. (HAPI) provides artistic opportunities for persons in mental health and addiction recovery to promote healing, community awareness and inclusion. Exhibited artwork is varied, high quality, imaginative, and thought-provoking. HAPI could not exhibit the work of its talented artists without the ongoing, generous support of the Tennessee Arts Commission and Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission.
*HAPI’s peer support center partners are: Centerstone – ReConnect Clarksville, Columbia, Dickson, Nashville, Shelbyville, and Tullahoma; Mending Hearts, Inc.; The Next Door; Our Place Murfreesboro; Park Center South; and TMHCA Columbia, McMinnville, Murfreesboro, and Nashville.
