Dearborn County Citizens Against Substance Abuse is pleased to bring you an exhibition highlighting substance abuse, addiction and recovery.

Substance abuse is currently our world’s biggest disease – responsible for cancers,
strokes, accidents, suicides, murders and violence. The purpose of this exhibit is to
contribute to the concept that creativity and artistic expression can play a significant role
both in recovery and in raising awareness of the personal and community tolls caused by substance abuse and addiction. Artworks can give insights into the human experience of addiction, can spark dialogs, can teach, and can change perceptions.
Artists are invited to submit original artworks on the theme of drug addiction and
recovery (drugs include alcohol, tobacco, illegal or prescription drugs).


This is a juried show with cash prizes (group projects are exempt from judging), one piece is chosen to be the advertisement for next years show and some chosen pieces will be displayed for one month after the end of the show at the Dearborn Highland Arts Council Gallery. Winners are scored in each medium by an anonymous jury. All ages are welcome to participate and any medium is accepted.

​During the show we have a free coffee bar as well as a silent Art auction. Admission is free and open to the public.
