Celebrating art

Joy Anderson

Malibu resident Joy Anderson, honorary chair of Art Heals Gallery, helped celebrate the healing power of art, productivity and the embrace of community on Oct. 9 when Step Up on Second opened its Art Heals Gallery to the public. The gallery features art created by members of Step Up on Second, a nonprofit that provides mentally ill individuals with opportunities to reintegrate into the community.
