adhc-flax-exhibit-forweb.jpg18th Annual #SelfasSuperHero Exhibit:

Presented by Attitudinal Healing Connection

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

Oakland Store, 12pm - 3pm

1501 Martin Luther King Jr Way
Oakland, CA 94612

Join us for the closing reception of the Self as Super Hero Art Show, now on exhibit at Flax. Meet the young artists behind the Super Hero self-portraits soaring from our rafters and learn more about Attitudinal Healing Connections award winning art and literacy program, ArtEsteem. This will be your opportunity to see the show before it comes down.


Through the ArtEsteem program, Attitudinal Healing Connection teams up with hundreds of Oakland Youth and asks them to re-imagine themselves as superheroes with powers to transform their community. The result is a colorful art exhibition that provides a creative platform for Oakland families, artists, and youth to come together through a journey of discovery, self-exploration and community empowerment. Several of the portraits in this exhibit are for sale, with fifty percent of the proceeds going directly to the student artists, and the remaining fifty percent towards future programming of ArtEsteem.

5% of all FLAX sales will go to Attitudinal Healing Connection the entire day of the closing reception.

This is a FREE event!
