WELLBEING MAIL ART CAMPAIGN
Sign up through April 30th
Receive your original Mail Art in May!

 

In partnership with WeRise.LA for Mental Health Awareness month in May, artists (Sabine Pearlman, M Susan Broussard, Deborah Lynn Irmas, Gregg Chadwick, and Melinda Smith Altshuler) will create original prints and works of art with messages of wellbeing and self-compassion.

Sign up for one for yourself, or to give to a parent, friend, or healthcare worker who may be experiencing pandemic burnout.

A little bit of art goes a long way.

In addition to the Mail Art, Rebecca Youssef will create a “Feel Good” artist’s ‘zine, and Nicola Goode will produce a collage poster of Black Lives Matter spontaneous protest art that will be distributed to Santa Monica and West Side neighborhoods.


A companion exhibition and related projects called
Recovery Justice: Being Well funded by the City of Santa Monica will be on view at 18th Street Arts Center’s Airport Campus (3026 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica) from March 29 – July 16, available by public appointment. 

Partners include the Community Clinics Association of Los Angeles County (CACLAC), St. John’s Well Child & Family Center, and the Community Corporation of Santa Monica.
