Breaking Stigma Through Art
INTO LIGHT honors the lives of those who have died from drug addiction in their entirety, rather than defining these lives only by the disease of addiction and their cause of death.

The INTO LIGHT art exhibit will be displayed at the Malone Galleries January 4 - February 12. (Safety precautions are in place.) The exhibit will feature 41 graphite portraits of individuals from Ohio who lost their lives to drug addiction.
