"Art on 8" is a rotating art exhibit of client artwork. Individuals from The Office of Mental Health Inpatient Psychiatric Centers and Outpatient clinics contribute to the exhibit.

The “Art on 8” exhibit began in 2007 when it was decided to showcase client artwork, which represented a positive message of hope and recovery for individuals with mental illness. The first show’s response was overwhelmingly positive and continues to provide clients a venue for showcasing their talent and journey of recovery.

"Art on 8" is now publicized throughout the Office of Mental Health as well as the Office of Persons with Developmental Disabilities. Staff from the building enjoy the shows and support the artists by purchasing their art. Previous artist receptions have been very well attended by friends and family of the artists who want to their support and be a part of their loved one’s recovery.
