Making the World a More Beautiful Place: Thanks to Some Current and Former UW-Green Bay Students

Kimberly Martiny, a UW-Green Bay Psychology and Art student, recently teamed up with the Brown County affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to coordinate an art based project for Diversions, a temporary home for individuals recovering from mental health issues.

The project was funded by NAMI Brown County, who worked with Tradewinds Art Supply to provide the supplies. After 5 months of hard work and donated time from more than 15 artists (most of them current or past UW-Green Bay students), 87 paintings were completed and, last November, were installed at Diversions.

Artists involved in the project (some of whom also have links to Psychology and Human Development) included Matthew Pickard, Emily Bartos, Beth Servais, Jason Keller, Kristin Gregiore, Rich Rouse, Amber Bork, Garrett Hetzel, Ashley Sixt, Ali Stalsburg, Alyssa Falvey, Jen Aldrich and Kimberly Martiny. Additionally, Lauren Garrison worked on a number of paintings with high school students to complete their volunteer and service hours for school requirements. All of the work now proudly hangs in Diversions for clients to enjoy.
