Client Testimonial

I had been homeless for two years when I got involved with People Incorporated. Now I have my own apartment, I’m working on my GED, and I’m planning to go to college and then find work. I’m just so grateful.

Art Show and Sale

People Incorporated’s Artability Art Show and Sale is an annual celebration of the creativity and contributions of people with mental illnesses to our community. It 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. Any adult (18+) with a mental health diagnosis can participate. 

The show is a source of inspiration and pride for the area’s mental health community, encouraging artists to explore their interests, share their love of art, and gain confidence in their skills. Artists 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.

The Artability Art Show and Sale 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!
