Montgomery, Ala. – Since 2005, ADMH has hosted the Capitol Showcase, a consumer art show at the Alabama’s State Capitol. People from around the state with mental illnesses, developmental disabilities, substance use disorders and co-occurring disorders have their abilities showcased throughout the month of May. Join us May 1-23 at the Alabama State Capitol, Old Supreme Court Library to view the art of the people ADMH and local providers serve.

With each piece of art, a short narrative is displayed at the Showcase, offering heartfelt information about their lives and describing how art can be an integral part of their mental health and recovery.

Nearly 160 pieces of art will be on display in the Old Supreme Court Library in the State Capitol. Alabama Department of Mental Health Commissioner Lynn Beshear invites all Alabamians to view the show now through May 23. A reception will be hosted on May 23 for the artists and supporters.

The department thanks the Booker T. Washington Magnet School National Art Honor Society students for assisting in the extensive set up of the show.
