«Operation Monarch: Addressing Substance Abuse, Recovery, and the Role of Art»
March 29 — May 11, 2019
Artists' Reception: Friday, April 5 | 6-8 p.m.

The Columbus Recreation and Parks Department Cultural Arts Center (CAC) hosts «Operation Monarch,» an exhibition of contemporary works by Ohio artists co-curated by Bev Goldie and Myken Pullins. The substance abuse crisis continues to dominate the news as more and more Ohio families find their lives impacted by addiction. This exhibition shares the stories of those affected and explores the role of art through the journey of recovery.

It’s a rare day when you can pick up a newspaper without some reference to the social and economic fallout from substance abuse. Addiction is a multi-faceted problem that affects not only the individual but also families, friends, employers, and society as a whole. There is hardly a person in Ohio who has not been touched by this crisis. Operation Monarch will allow us to see how some individuals have overcome their addiction partially through making art. Indeed, the title of the exhibition was chosen to reflect that addiction and recovery are parts of a journey of transformation. We hope that art will help us understand the stories of those most affected by the crisis.
