In the Spring of 2019, the Columbus Cultural Arts Center (CAC) will host a major exhibition focused on the substance abuse crisis now gripping Ohio (and much of the nation). The goals for this exhibition, Operation Monarch: Addressing Substance Abuse, Recovery, and the Role of Art, are several-fold:
• To educate and challenge the Greater Columbus community about their perceptions of Substance Use Disorders and those who have endured its deadly grasp; and
• To show that recovery is possible and how art can have an important role in the process.
In issuing this open-call we hope to get responses from artists working in a wide range of media that reflect all facets of the addiction crisis, from the experience of users and those in recovery, to the impact of abuse on family, friends, and community. Selection from the open call will be done by 2 - 3 jurors with backgrounds in public health, social work, and art.
