Recognizing the importance of mental health awareness and the expressive power of artistic pursuits, Maryland’s First Lady, Mrs. Yumi Hogan, invites children and youth to participate in a statewide art project for the 7th year in Maryland. 

Celebrating Through Art: The First Lady's Mental Health Awareness Youth Art Display, will showcase a selection of this artwork from youth across Maryland during a virtual event on Monday, May 2, 2022 at 4:00pm. Children and youth express something that makes them feel mentally happy, healthy or hopeful in their pieces. Distinguished guests from our partnerships across the state - including our honorary chair of the Campaign, Maryland's First Lady, Mrs. Yumi Hogan, will join the event to offer congratulatory remarks.
