Juried Exhibition “Monterey County – Visualize Health Equity” at the Health Department Building
What does Health Equity look, feel and sound like to you?

On behalf of the Monterey County Health Department, the Arts Council is seeking original works of art for a juried show at the Monterey County Health Department Building at 1270 Natividad Road, Salinas, California. Sixty (60) artwork pieces promoting “what does health equity look like to you.” All works will be on loan to the County for a period not to exceed one year. All accepted works will be insured — from the time of delivery to the County building until time of pick up — for a value not to exceed $4,000.
