Carmel International Arts Festival Art Heals Project



Art has a way of healing during troubled times, whether you’re watching it on a computer screen or making it in your home. The Carmel International Arts Festival announces a new “The Art Heals Project” in which artists of all ages and stages are encouraged to express their feelings through their own creations of art – produced now, while quarantined due to the COVID-19 pandemic and then displayed September 26-27 at the 2020 Carmel International Arts Festival.

“We know that expressing your feelings through art can be therapeutic and we also know how people are felling during this crazy pandemic. We want to challenge artists and non-artists to be creative and let art be a means of healing during quarantine. We can’t wait to share all of these pieces during our festival in September,” said Rachel Ferry, executive
director of the Carmel International Arts Festival.

In order to have your art work displayed, it must be created during the quarantine, you must register online and once completed, take a picture of yourself with your art project and share it on social media with the hashtag #ArtHealsProject. The completed projects will be displayed in a special booth planned for this year’s Festival in Carmel.
