Are you an artist who has experienced mental illness? Apply today for NAMI Wisconsin’s 8th Annual Healing Art Show!
Each year, NAMI Wisconsin hosts the Healing Art Show as a part of Mental Illness Awareness Week in October. The show features the works of local artists with mental illness who creatively express themselves through various forms of art. The purpose of the Healing Art Show is to break down stigma surrounding mental illness. By showcasing the artistic works created by people with mental illness we want to highlight the creative talents and personal strengths that far overshadow any mental illness.
To close Mental Illness Awareness Week 2014, the opening reception of the Healing Art Show exhibit will take place October 10 from 5-9 pm at Crescendo Café on Monroe Street. Art will be on display at Crescendo Café throughout the month of October.
Last year's show was a huge success, with the beautiful works of 14 Wisconsin artists. The evening commenced with a raffle, live music, tasty food and great company. Don't miss it this Mental Illness Awareness Week!
