Call for Art by Santa Monica Disabilities Commission

Posted in Call for entry, Disability Art, and Exhibit

The Santa Monica Disabilities Commission is currently seeking 2-dimensional art work (drawing, painting and printed work) created by people who have mental illness for a group exhibit during Mental Health Awareness Month (May). The art will be on display at the Main Santa Monica Public Library for 2 weeks during the month of May, and will accompany books and information that would help bring awareness and educate the public about mental health.
