People Incorporated’s Artability program is an annual celebration of the creativity and contributions of people with mental illnesses to our community. A series of art and writing workshops lead up to the multi-day Artability Show & Sale held each fall. Click here for the entry form and for additional information on framing and submission times.

More than 100 artists from the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota participate in the workshops and art show each year. Artability is vital to the work of People Incorporated in helping individuals living with mental illnesses to work toward achieving their goals related to living independent and enriched lives. The show is a source of inspiration and pride for the area’s mental health community, and encourages artists to explore their interests, share their love of art, and gain confidence in their skills. Artists may sell their work at the show and receive 80% of the profits, with the remaining 20% going back to support the Artability program. Writers also contribute their creative work to an anthology available for sale at the show.

Artability receives support from the community through donations of money and volunteer time. To help this program survive and grow, please consider making a gift today! To learn more about volunteering for Artability contact volunteer@peopleincorporated.org.
