Health Through Art (HTA) provides access to high quality art experiences to underserved communities throughout Alameda County. Since 1989 Health Through Art has conducted a biennial community wide Call for Art (CFA).
HEALTH THROUGH ART'S 13TH CALL FOR ART
In an effort to minimize the effects of COVID-19 in our community, Health Through Art has decided to limit drop off times to March 30th & 31st between 12 pm & 4 pm. The 13th Call for Art will end on March 31st at 4 pm.
We encourage everyone to mail their art to 1905 San Pablo Ave, Oakland, CA 94612 if possible.
We encourage everyone to use this time to create art, whether it’s painting, drawing, coloring, photography, etc.
Art is a great form of expression and healing.

This incredible expressive art represents the voices of Alameda County artists from 5 - 70 years of age whose images bring an awareness to mental health issues and substance use disorders. These works promote messages of wellness and change to create healthier communities and neighborhoods. Additionally, selected artworks are turned into campaigns that are displayed throughout the county on BART, bus interiors, bus shelters, and bus trails.

Every day we are surrounded by negative imagery, negative messages and negative advertisements. They remind us that we either aren’t good enough, that we don’t have enough or that we made a mistake. They rob us of our energy and they give us nothing in return but a feeling of emptiness, unworthiness and depression - Live Pure Joy is a response to all of that.
