this saturday March 15 there will be non-stop action at the Magoski Arts Colony!
First, from 12:30p-5:30p, NAMI will be hosting an artist reception for their latest exhibit in Hibbleton entitled “See and Be Seen”: A Group Exhibition Exploring Mental Health Awareness, Wellness, and Resilience.
“See and Be Seen” exhibitions are inspired by: “how we see ourselves,” “how we think others see us” and “how we would like to be seen.” Featured works of art were produced during hands-on arts workshops for people with mental health challenges. Come view this art exhibition and learn about the experience of hope, wellness, and resilience for people in your community living with mental health challenges.
All art works are created in the Arts Network Artist in Residency Program by art students from Palm Village Board and care in Garden Grove, CA.
The Arts Network promotes mental health wellness, recovery and stigma elimination through arts programming and community outreach. For more information, visit www.namicalifornia.org.
