Journey to Wellness Art Show

 

NAMI-WRV “Journey To Wellness” Art Show committee, Poo Wright Pulliam, Marie Stewart, Kirk Anderson and David Rau, cordially invite you to participate in this year’s art show to end the stigma in our community.

NAMI-WRV is a non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of people with mental illness by providing education, support, and advocacy. NAMI assists crisis support, public awareness events and activities to talk about healthy habits and end the stigma of mental conditions. At NAMI-WRV we work hard to bring this work to our community to make our community and Idaho a better place to live. In May of 2017 NAMI sponsored its first ever Art Event, “Starry Night” The show was a resounding success. This year we intend to build and expand on this success by including many more of our local artists.

As part of our StigmaFree program and with a focus on this year’s theme, “Journey to Wellness” we invite all artists in our valley to contribute a work of art. This will be a piece that represents or relates to concepts of mental illness and Journeys to Wellness. We encourage artists working in any medium to take this idea and make it their own. Health and Wellness is NAMI’s focus for this campaign. Please consider creating a work of art in your chosen medium that suggests or manifests ideas about mental illness, health, and wellness.

By donating a piece of your artwork to our silent auction, this is an opportunity to display your work while helping so many people in our community.  NAMI is committed to breaking down barriers and moving beyond stigma. We hope you will be part of this extraordinary occasion. All funds raised from this event will go towards NAMI’s four ongoing support groups or services in the Wood River Valley. All NAMI programs are free to the public.
