"Art Uniting People" engages the community in a conversation about the uniqueness and commonality of people through art. It is part of an effort to raise awareness about the stigma faced by those with mental illness, substance use disorders, and intellectual disabilities. Everyone is welcome!  All artists whose work is exhibited, their families and friends and the public are invited.

The "Art Uniting People" exhibition is presented each May to reduce stigma and foster understanding by engaging the Alexandria community in a conversation about each person's uniqueness and the commonality we all share. The exhibit presents the work of those whose lives have been affected by mental illness, addiction and developmental disabilities.
