Art of Recovery

Wednesday, January 17, 4:00pm – 5:00pm EST

This session is designed to dispel myths about substance abuse and creativity. Joyce Raimondo presents Jackson Pollock’s alcoholism and its impact on his art and life. Pollock and his passenger Edith Metzger’s deaths were caused by a car accident as a result of Pollock driving while intoxicated in 1956. Following the art presentation, Joyce will discuss resources for recovery from alcoholism, and participants are invited to share art that addresses recovery from substance abuse.

This Zoom event will highlight Lee Krasner and other famous artists such as Henri Matisse, Frida Kahlo, Claude Monet, and others whose physical challenges sparked creativity and innovative adaptive processes leading to the creation of masterpieces.
