Show us your art, and help Save A Heart!

save a heart - call for artists facebookWe have big plans in store for this year’s annual Save A Heart celebration, and we need your help!

Part of this year’s celebration will be a one-of-a-kind art display and auction to raise funds for the important work made possible through our Save A Heart fund. Your Little Victor could be one of our featured artists!

To be considered for one of a limited number of selected artist roles, please email a sample of your child’s artwork to dawilkin@med.umich.edu by August 22. Please include the child’s full name, age, and up to 75 words about your child’s CHD journey. You can send a scanned in image of your child’s artwork or a photo of your child’s artwork.

We are sorry, but submissions received after August 22 will not be considered. Selected artists will be asked to create a special work of art specifically for the Save A Heart event, which will not be returned. We will contact selected artists with additional details and next steps. Everyone who submits art for consideration will be notified via email by August 31 whether their child’s artwork was selected.

This opportunity is limited to patients and their family members who have been cared for by the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital Congenital Heart Center, including both children and adults.

Please contact Donna Wilkin at dawilkin@med.umich.edu with additional questions.
