Statewide Traveling Consumer Art Show 2017-2019


The Community Mental Health Association of Michigan (CMHAM) is sponsoring a two-year, statewide traveling art show featuring the work of artists who use CMH services.  The tour has two goals: 1) to help de-stigmatize mental illness, intellectual\developmental disabilities and substance use disorders by showcasing the talents of people who use CMH services; and 2) to highlight the recovery potential of the arts.  

Since its first appearance at CMHAM’s 2010 Spring Conference, the Traveling Art Show has been making appearances all across the State of Michigan.  The current Traveling Art Show (V) will continue to make appearances statewide until October 2019 when it will make its final appearance at CMHAM’s 2019 Fall Conference.

The art is available for purchase at any time during its' tour.  If you see a piece your would like, contact Monique at or call the CMHAM office at (517) 374-6848.

During its travels, the Art Show will be available for viewing below. Find out when the art show will be in your area by clicking on the schedule below.  Frames are included in the sizes provided next to the titles of the artwork.
