Odyssey House and global strategic branding firm Siegel+Gale celebrate ten years of creating art by members of the Odyssey House Art Project, men and women coping with substance abuse, mental illness, and homelessness. This is the first curated show of paintings, photographs, and masks from an art collection a decade in the making.
Creative expression plays a critical role in the rejuvenation of the human spirit and provides a way of reaching sensitive issues embedded in the human psyche. Unschooled artists in treatment are encouraged to identify archetypal themes such as childhood, family and spiritual wholeness. These journeys of self-discovery and healing have produced works spanning the provocative and profound to the playful and whimsical.
