Safe Spaces Opening Reception
Collected artworks by members of the Odyssey House Art Project
Please join us on December 14 for a festive holiday reception celebrating the opening of the Odyssey House Art Project's exhibition, Safe Spaces.
Please note: To keep everyone safe and healthy this holiday season, we strongly recommend wearing a mask when visiting the gallery. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at the front desk.
For our 2022 exhibition, members of the Odyssey House Art Project explored what “safe space” means to each of them and created artwork to express this concept.
Safe spaces don’t have to be physical locations. They can also be spiritual, emotional, or symbolic. They can be something as simple as a group of people who hold similar values and provide each other with a supportive, respectful environment.
Safe spaces are vehicles to help people take care of their mental health so they can actively engage in treatment. They allow people to be vulnerable without fear of judgment or harm, helping them to overcome challenges, build resilience, and focus on recovery.
