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 the theme, “Journey to Wellness” we invite all artists in our valley to contribute a work of art. 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.
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.
Many thanks to all of the amazing volunteers, board members, family members, advisors for your time that you donated to make this event possible. A special thanks to Charlotta Harris for the pictures, the Wood River Orchestra for the live music and Kat Vanden Huevel for the being the MC of the night.
Thank YOU to everyone that attended, and donated, to the
NAMI “Starry Night” Art Show for Mental Health Awareness Month in 2017. We had over 150 people guests and raised nearly $14,000 for the FREE support groups and programs in the Wood River Valley.
