Exhibit your work at our Sept. 6 Art Hop exhibit, "SEE ME: Looking Beyond Stigma"

Call for Artist FINAL2 png.png

Challenge people to #LookBeyond assumptions by displaying your artwork at SEE ME: Looking Beyond Stigma! Our 2nd annual Art Hop exhibit is Friday, Sept. 6 from 5-8 p.m. in the lower level of the Epic Center.

For people who live with mental health challenges, substance use disorders or disabilities, one of the most painful experiences is the stigma of being seen as "other"—as a diagnosis, a moral failure or a problem, instead of a human being.

By sharing your personal experience of stigma in the form of drawings, paintings, photos, poems, sculptures and more, you’ll help people SEE the person behind the diagnosis.

Drop off your artwork and fill out a submission form at any of the locations listed above, during the week of Aug. 19-23. QUESTIONS? Call (269) 364-6925 or email hello@LookBeyondStigma.org.
