Call for artists - Visualize Health Equity

The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) is calling on artists to Visualize Health Equity for a nationwide community art project.

Show us what health equity would look like to you—whether it’s access to healthy food or safe neighborhoods, good education or a living wage, clean drinking water or affordable housing, connection to cultural heritage or lack of discrimination, or any other opportunity that helps you live your healthiest life.

This project is part of the NAM’s Culture of Health Program, which is working to identify strategies that support equitable good health for all Americans.

Submission deadline: September 4, 2017 Sign up information

The Other Art Fair New York 2017

The Other Art Fair was born from a realization of the disparity between an audience eager to discover the next big thing and talented artists struggling to gain recognition. Six years on and with fairs strongly established in the US, UK, and Australia, the effects of the fair's growing reputation are not only demonstrated through the support of leading individuals in the art world but also the frequency of success stories from past exhibitors.
