CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Art created by some people receiving mental health treatment in South Carolina is going on display in Charleston.
An exhibit of nearly 100 pieces created through the South Carolina Department of Mental Health's Art of Recovery program is opening on Friday at the Circular Congregation Church in Charleston.
Organizers say the display highlights the role that art can play in the recovery process. Many of the works on display will be for sale, with all proceeds going directly to the artist.
The exhibit runs through June 9 and is part of Piccolo Spoleto, Charleston's companion event to the Spoleto Festival USA. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
