Nashville Bar Journal features HAPI Gallery at Metro Courthouse

Chancellor Carol L. McCoy featured the HAPI Gallery at the Courthouse where artwork of HAPI artists/participants hang on the fourth floor outside the courtrooms of Chancellor McCoy and Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman.  The public is more aware of the artists’ recovery journey as they see the art and read their comments on the identifications cards.  “These works of art offer a reminder that those struggling with personal challenges can find an outlet that enriches not only their lives but the lives of many others.”

 

Artwork in the Metro Courthouse Gallery is changed periodically so courtroom visitors see a wide sample of the artistic talents of HAPI artists.  The presence of this Gallery in this public space is recognition of the place that art plays in the values of our community.
