APA outgoing President Paul Appelbaum, M.D., prepares to announce the winners of the APA Art Association exhibit at APA’s 2003 annual meeting. With him are Gail Barton, M.D., president of the APA Art Association, and Elisabeth Small, M.D., exhibit coordinator.

More than 1,000 people came to view the wide diversity of works on display in the APA Art Association’s exhibit at APA’s 2003 annual meeting in San Francisco in May and helped to determine the prize winners in each category.

The Art Association has sponsored an exhibit at the annual meeting for 32 years as an occasion for APA members and their partners to show their creative productions and to discuss and share with colleagues and attendees the many ideas and insights derived from their work, ranging from ceramics to poetry.

Visitors—many of whom were international psychiatrists—expressed their thoughts concerning the value of having such an event at the annual meeting: "We retain humanity this way." "Art—always essential." "Inspiring! Healing! As usual, wonderful." "Enjoyed the show and some pearls of wisdom."

Votes cast by the exhibit visitors determined the ribbon winners in each of the categories. The awards were presented by outgoing APA President Paul Appelbaum, M.D.
