Recovery Art Portraying Personal Journeys to be Presented
What does addiction recovery look like via color, light, and shadow? Local artists Phil Sugden, Nancy Frankenfield, Tamera Rooney, and Ray Munoz will offer their interpretations in “RBR (Right Brain Recovery) Gallery Exhibit: Stories of Recovery through the Eyes of an Artist.” Inspired by open and honest personal journeys of mental health, addiction, and trauma recovery, the art will be unveiled Oct. 29, 2019 in the University of Findlay’s Center for Student Life Jebbett Meeting Room 120.
An open house will be held at 6:30 p.m., and an art presentation will take place at 7 p.m.
In partnership with the University of Findlay, the program is being funded as part of the Pursuing Cultural Humility grant from the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation. UF’s Buford Center for Diversity and Service was awarded the grant in 2018 to fund collaborative student and community organization projects focused on furthering diversity outreach and understanding.
Event sponsors also include Focus Recovery and Wellness Community and the Jones Building Artists.
The public is invited to this unique educational and empathetic endeavor. Refreshments will be served along with ideas that just might inspire individual creativity and broaden perspectives about marginalized cultures.
