Gallery 901 exhibits strive to increase awareness around pressing social issues to a diverse audience. We present exhibits of community artists and groups which celebrate the affirmative impact of the creative process, and which encourage positive social change. The artists, groups, and organizations highlight healing or transformational components to their artwork. Gallery 901 is an inclusive gallery that often welcomes audiences who may not frequent art spaces.
The Art of Recovery
View this series of round canvases created by Veterans from the Edward Hines Jr VA Hospital. Each image represents what recovery means to them. Recovery is both a personal journey and a community process. The exhibit allows you to ponder the meaning of recovery, what you do for others, and how others contribute to your recovery.
The recovery journey is documented through this series; some examples are physical recovery from an illness or injury, mental health recovery from depression, PTSD, addiction or recovery in relation to the current pandemic.
This art exhibit will be on display at Gallery 901 in Evanston, IL – it will also be displayed virtually for the OSP and Hines communities. Exhibit organized by Erin Mooney-Simkus, Art Therapist at Hines VA Hospital.
