Kenneth Young Center (KYC) is hosting a recovery virtual arts show, hosted on the Communities for Positive Youth Development website, a KYC coalition. This visual art show is seeking to highlight the experiences of those impacted by addictive behaviors, such as substance use, self-harm, gambling, or others. Art includes illustration, photography, painting, and more. 

The theme is visions. The theme is visions. What are your dreams, visions, and aspirations for personal or societal transformation when it comes to recovery from addictive behaviors?


Each participating artist (see list below) submitted artwork related to the theme. This show seeks to highlight artists and community members in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. 


We are excited to share the list of participating artists in the show this fall! We will share closer to December 5th.

We value all skill levels, including beginners, professional artists, artwork made in treatment, students, doodlers, and more.
