Art of Recovery

We invite you to join us for the 8th annual Art of Recovery benefit - a celebration of art, recovery and our community!

Community Support Services (CSS) will again celebrate the role of artistic expression in recovery during a live event March 14 at Akron Art Museum.

The annual Art of Recovery benefit hosted by CSS has showcased more than 300 original works of art since 2016. The artists are clients living with severe and persistent mental illness, many of whom participate in CSS’ Expressive Arts Therapy program. Art of Recovery showcases these clients’ creativity and talents while also fighting the stigma of mental illness and celebrating the powerful impact creative expression has in the mental health recovery process.

Art of Recovery 2023 - Event Details

  • The event will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, at Akron Art Museum.
  • More than 40 pieces of professionally framed, original artwork will be showcased in an online auction format.
  • 75% of art sale proceeds will go to the artists and 25% will be reinvested in CSS’ Expressive Art Therapy program.
