Three members of the Odyssey House Art Project received well-deserved recognition at the 18th Annual Recovery Fine Arts Festival. Nelson B. (Leadership Center) earned first place in the photography category for his piece, “Pathways of Support,” while Leopoldo R. (ElderCare) secured first place in the mixed media category for his artwork “Rise.” Recent Leadership Center graduate Justin M. won first prize in poetry for “Maximize.”
The festival serves as a platform to celebrate the artistic accomplishments of individuals in their recovery journey from addiction. The Recovery Fine Arts Festival is sponsored by the NYS Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS) and Friends of Recovery New York (FOR-NY) each September, coinciding with National Recovery Month.
