Submit Your Art to be Displayed at Mental Wellness Night!

We Want Your Submissions!

January is Mental Wellness Month so The Hume Center wants to do its part to increase mental health awareness and support the reduction of stigma related to mental health by creating this annual Art Show! You're invited to submit art, photographs, and poems to help increase Mental Health Awareness.

The Art Show will be displayed during Mental Wellness Night on January 27, 2014 as the San Jose Sharks take on the Los Angeles Kings. Therefore, chosen submissions have the potential to be seen by 17,000 people!

We are looking for art, photographs, and poems from two categories for submission:

Category 1: Mental Wellness
Can you artistically capture what Mental Wellness means to you in a picture, piece of art, or poem?

Category 2: The Experience of Stigma Related to Mental Health
Stigma related to mental health can be a strong force in our lives. Can you capture the experience of stigma within art, a photograph, or a poem?
