Riverbend and Tufts Health Freedom Plan present “Do You Know…”: The Art Show.
By putting the spotlight on artists who through their art raise awareness on issues surrounding mental illness and substance use, the ‘Do You Know’ art show will elevate the public’s awareness of de-stigmatization in regard to mental illness and substance use. An exhibition of select artists illuminates and celebrates the power of narrative art as a tool for challenging stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness and addiction. The exhibition itself will be populated with art works that carry compelling narrative, and the event will celebrate the select artists engaged in anti-stigma work through their art.
All submissions are due by Monday, April 15.
All artwork must be completely dry
Wall and suspended art must have d-rings and/or be wired
Pieces cannot exceed 5’x5’
