Breaking the Silence is a site-specific glass
installation created by Los Angeles based Japanese glass artist,
Kazuki Takizawa. The installation was installed at STARworks
Glass Lab in Star, North Carolina in 2015. The performance
included water system that slowly sprinkled droplets of water
into hundreds of off- centered glass vessels that eventually
tipped over and fell. This installation was created to increase
awareness on suicide.
CIBHS, in partnership with the County Behavioral Health Directors
Association of California (CBHDA) is proud to present this
gallery of works from the Recovery Arts Program. This gallery,
open to participants in county art-recovery programs across the
state, showcases outstanding examples of art as a pathway to
wellness. We invite you to explore both the art and the artists,
by visiting the artists’ galleries that will be displayed here.
CIBHS is proud to issue this “Call for Artwork”. CIBHS’s web site
will hold a client art gallery. The gallery is open to
participants in county and community-based recovery arts
programs, from both mental health and substance use services.
We welcome submissions from art-recovery programs within
California. All ages are welcome, and we encourage pieces that
depict cultural diversity, explore disability themes, and promote
social change in mental health. For more information, contact
