Our Mission
Our Mission. [The Art for Arachnoiditis Project is a fiscally sponsored project of The New York Foundation for the Arts]
Our first Art Exhibit will feature Art By Spinal Arachnoiditis Survivors. Although the entry deadline has passed for work to be included in this April 2015 exhibit, it is NEVER too late to submit your Survivor Story and/or art to be included in the Art By Surivivors collection here. All entries received after the Feb. 15, 2015 deadline our reserved for consideration in future exhibits.

2014-2015 CATEGORIES: Arachnoiditis Survivor Portrait Project, Arachnoiditis In Real Life (digital photo series), Art By Survivors (see the slide show on right side of our Home page) and Art For Sale By SurvivorsSurvivors’ Stories are still being accepted for use on this website and for consideration in future project publications.  See the 2014-2015 Categories Registration Form for additional details and instructions.

We continue to receive and accept entries for the Album of the Survivors and/or the Map of Survivors.

Not sure what kind of art to make? Although you are never under any obligation to share the results, Healing Art Activities are a good way to begin making art. It would be an honor to share your process and outcomes with the world.

We are especially interested in seeing what you make of Healing Art Activity #20.

ANOTHER EASY WAY TO PARTICIPATE:

WE want your empty prescription bottles
WE want your empty orange and white prescription bottles

Do you have a bunch of these and don’t know what to do with them? Want to support the project but not sure how to contribute? Send your empty, clean (ORANGE w/ WHITE LIDS) script bottles to the Art For Arachnoiditis project at Sheilalynnk Art Studio with a slip of paper inside the bottle saying, “I am an Arachnoiditis Survivor” or “End Arachnoiditis Now”(if you do not have arachnoiditis). We will re-purpose them into art. [PLEASE BE SURE TO REMOVE ALL LABELS/NAMES/ID info]  

These bottles will be utilized in the completion of a NEW Arachnoiditis Awareness Art project being assembled at SheilaLynnK Art Studio for display in the NEXT exhibit. [Date, location, and CALL FOR ENTRIES TBA]

THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US ON THIS JOURNEY.
