Detroit, MI — July 19, 2018 — Mariners Inn will commemorate their residents’ recovery with the annual “The Art of Transformation: A Celebration of Creativity in Recovery.”
The exhibit will feature work from residents and alumni of Mariners Inn while simultaneously giving them a platform to showcase their progression in recovery through art.
“When visitors come to the art show they get to see the art created by individuals. They aren't seen as addicts initially like in most cases,” says Megan White, Art Therapist at Mariners Inn. “As far as the artists themselves, I believe it gives them a sense of pride. They get to create something, then they get to see it on display in a public space. It increases their sense of self and self esteem."
The art will be displayed throughout the entire month of July, but the Celebration & Reception runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 19th, 2018 at the Boll Family YMCA, 1401 Broadway St. It is open to the public and there is no admission fee. The art on display will be available for purchase, with the proceeds benefiting Mariners Inn programming and the artists.
