Description

The newly renovated facility for the Long Beach Mental Health Center serves over 4,000 clients annually ranging from children, adolescents, families and adults to provide psychiatric, early intervention and clinical services. To further promote the Department of Mental Health’s mission statement of “hope, recovery and well-being,” the LA County Arts Commission’s Civic Art Program developed a curatorial approach that focuses on artworks that provide warmth, contribute to the healing process and reduce stress. The 18 works in the collection are by local artists, with an emphasis on abstract work evoking the California landscape and include artists Betsy Lohrer Hall, Brian Hollister, Margaret Lazzari, Kimiko Miyoshi, Leo Rivas and Ashley Shumaker.
