“Tim and his crew brought out the best in our teen participants during the Puzzle Project.

They gave basic ideas and instruction, walked around looking over shoulders, answered questions and helped resolve artistic challenges while instilling a passion for art and self expression. Tim and his team are dynamic, inspirational and charming. Our teen artists loved them and have made the commitment to attend other puzzle project workshops.

The final puzzle is hanging in our entry foyer and looks amazing. We've received a wonderful response from the teens, parents and community."

“Our club finally had the workshop with our Balboa Naval Hospital.

The group I specifically worked with was a small unit of patients suffering from PTSD. At first I wasn't sure we were going to have the workshop as there were a few who were not in an 'art' type spirit, but as soon as they sat at the table they were smiling and really enjoying themselves. Their director was so pleased we were able to provide an activity like this and it's all because of YOU and your wonderful art movement! It was a very rewarding experience. However, because of policies regarding patients privacy I was unfortunately not able to take photos during the workshop, but am looking forward to sending you their pieces the end of this month".

“The Puzzle Project is masterful in using the great powers of art to build community, encourage dialogue and add unexpected beauty to our world. 

The Puzzle Project supports and extends ACNY’s mission to make original artwork available to New Yorkers in non-traditional ways. It offers a rare and rich combination that generates individual achievement and group involvement. ACNY’s first workshop was nothing short of remarkable! Some 30 people, ranging in age from 6 to 70, arrived ready to create puzzle pieces, and did they ever! Each finished piece its own unique creation."

Note from a Puzzle Project participant...
Hi Tim.

This is Paula Peacock, Art Director for Soft Voices Drop-in Center for Adults with Mental Illness. We have completed our pieces and we all thank you very much! Every one was excited about participating in an International collaborative art piece.

Our members have learned that despite the stigma of mental illness, their life and stories are interwoven with others in the world and are part of the larger picture of life.

Thank you again!

Paula Peacock
