The Richmond Museum of History & Culture is excited to announce the winners of the 2021 Healthy Living Poster Contest
RMHC is proud to boost local artists representing the City of Richmond and Vallejo. The posters will be displayed at the forthcoming exhibit exploring the history of health care in Richmond. A limited number of posters will be distributed free of charge to community centers and others will be sold in the RMHC gift shop. Please contact Melinda at email@example.com if you’re interested in receiving one of the free posters.
The contest is supported by a grant through the Neighborhood Public Art Grant Program through the City of Richmond Arts & Culture Commission.
Statement: We receive a lot of our energy from what we eat. In my opinion, what we put into our system determines how we physically and mentally show up in the world. Having healthy soil can lead to growing healthy food which can impact our body, mind, and spirit in a positive way. Communities of color tend to have a high disproportionate amount of fast food restaurants and liquor stores than community gardens and healthy food. This bilingual poster promotes the importance of maintaining healthy soil to create healthy food, a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
Congratulations to all the winners!
