Faces & Journeys of Hope Art Submission

FACES & JOURNEYS OF ART – View The Online Gallery

The Faces & Journeys of Hope Campaign aims to canvas Richland County with Hope. Have you created a piece of work that represents your triumph over a struggle? Are you using art to help you find recovery? Is there a person, place or thing that inspires you when you are feeling hopeless? This CALL FOR ART is an opportunity to share your story through art. Sharing your HOPE allows others to draw inspiration from your experience and create open conversations around the journey to choose wellness and connect people with sources of help.

Art will be displayed in several public venues throughout Richland County including The Mansfield Art Center, Downtown on the Square, Richland Academy of the Arts, Dan Lew Exchange, Richland County Mental Health & Recovery Services Board additional locations will be added based on the amount of art received.
