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.

Artability Art Show

People Incorporated’s annual Artability Art Show celebrates art as a powerful force for self-expression, healing, and community mental health. The show, now in its 26th year, features a variety of artwork and writing pieces created by local artists 18 years of age or older who experience barriers to mental wellness.

2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition

We’ve contemplated new ways to share artist stories and artwork and we’ve made the decision to move the 2021 Artability Show to a virtual format to protect the health and safety of our communities.

The 2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition hopes to reflect on the events of the last year and how art, thoughtful conversations and coming together as a community can help us continue to heal, learn and grow.

Our Artability Show Virtual Edition premiere took place on November 5, 2021 at 3 p.m. on our Facebook and YouTube channels and our website.

Watch our virtual artist showcases through the button below, to view select art and writing submissions and stories from our participating artists.
