It’s funny. We chose the theme, “Everyday Life” months before the world turned upside down. Our normal was no longer. Old routines turned into new skill sets. We grieved losses - physical and emotional, but we found innovative ways to connect and stay safe. Our mental health has been challenged on a global scale, but instead of silence, the conversation is growing. So we ask you. What does everyday life mean to you, now? To us, it’s noticing when someone needs support, inviting ourselves to raise each other up, challenging ourselves to grow, empowering our communities with the knowledge to be resilient, and keeping in mind that we’re all in this together - every single day.
This annual event highlights artists in our community who manage ongoing or persistent mental illness.
Bid high and bid often because the artists receive 51% of the revenue made on their artwork, while the other 49% goes back to the Foundation to support mental health education throughout West Michigan and beyond.
