American Pain Foundation and HealthCentral Network Announce Call for Artistic Submissions for Creativity and Pain Exhibit
Date:6/23/2008

Organizations Seeking Images, Text, Video and Quilt Blocks as Expressions of Personal Pain Experience

BALTIMORE, June 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Pain Foundation (APF) (http://www.painfoundation.org) and The HealthCentral Network, Inc. (http://www.HealthCentral.com) announced today a call for entries for the second "Pain and Creativity" Exhibit. Those dealing with chronic pain from around the world are encouraged to submit expressions of how it has influenced their lives. Select artists and their pain stories will be highlighted through video, online and print publications to help share and illuminate the stories of pain and its impact on individuals and families.

This initiative is an effort to raise awareness of the pain experience and the impact it has on the individual, family and society and how it is expressed through art. Videos and a pain quilt that highlight artists and pain journeys will be shown at APF's annual celebration and awards dinner, Images and Inspiration, to be held at the American Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, on October 23. Welcome submissions include photos of still art, videos, and writing that reflect the experience of pain, as well as quilt blocks that will be incorporated into a larger work of art.

"Artistic expression is healing and powerful for the individual artists and for the audience," said Will Rowe, Chief Executive Officer of APF. "The American Pain Foundation hopes to bring these visual stories to a wider public to highlight the pain experience. Quilts are a literal and figurative symbol of comfort and the joining of patchwork is a symbol of unity and community. It is our hope that the entrants find comfort through their artistic expressions and that the public at large is unified in greater awareness and understanding about issues surrounding pain."
