He(art) of Vail Valley’s Youth

Event date: This event has already passed.

8:00am - 4:00pm


Mountain Youth, Red Ribbon Project and Valley’s Voice believe in the importance of creative outlets and the power of the arts in battling mental health stigmas. During the quarantine of COVID-19, many young people and adults alike turned to creative outlets in order to stay sane. Now, we would like to showcase some of the visual and performance artwork that young artists have created in the past few months or earlier. On July 12th, artwork will be shared via Mountain Youth’s social media from 8 am – 12 pm. The in-person event is private, and not open to the public. More information about virtual options can be found at: theheartofvailvalleyyouth.com closer to the event.

Along with the visual arts showcase, we will be featuring the following speakers who will discuss different ways to overcome mental health stigmas: Sam Litt and Kaselyn Komives with SpeakUp ReachOut, Gerry Lopez of EVBH, Sonia Mejia of Hearts Reign, Susanne Graf of Vail Mind Center, Drake Brown of EVHS and two-time Olympic gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team.
