Invitation to Artists

Friday, August 21st, 2009

ALTERNATIVES 2009 encourages artists to submit work that reflects their very personal stories or that raises consciousness about mental health issues. Selected artwork will be at a “virtual” art display through a PowerPoint presentation that will be shown as part of a gathering in the main ballroom.

If you would like to participate in this national “virtual” art display, E-MAIL UP TO TWO PHOTOS of your artwork to: tracimurry31@gmail.com. You do not need to attend the conference in order to participate.

The Alternatives 2009 Arts Committee requests that artists do their own self-review for appropriateness of material for a large, diverse audience of viewers with the understanding that the Committee reserves the right to make final selections.
