The Scottsboro- Jackson County Heritage Center is displaying the Pictures of Hope art work for the month of July.

An opening reception was held on July 1 to kick off the month long display.
Jackson County Drug Court and Family Wellness Court, along with artist, Sonya Clemons, developed the Pictures of Hope art program in 2017 to benefit the Recovery Community in Jackson County. In January 2018, Pictures of Hope was awarded a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts (ASCA), the state arts agency. As a result, Pictures of Hope was able to offer more classes throughout the year, as well as different art classes, such as Glow in the Dark. Each session hosts between ten and 50 participants and is open to anyone in the recovery community.
Classes for children will be held July 13, July 27, August 10, August 24, September 7, and  September 21 beginning at 3:30 p.m. Classes for adults will be held on July 23, August 14, August 27, September 1 and September 24 at 5:30 p.m. For more information, please contact Erica Weeks at the Jackson County Wellness Court.
Erica Weeks stated, “We look forward to sharing the artwork of both our adult and children contributors with our community. This program/project has been made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.”
The exhibit will be available for viewing at the Scottsboro - Jackson County Heritage Center daily  until July 29. The Center is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and is located at 208 S. Houston Street in Scottsboro.
