APA's annual meeting may be a cognitive event, but not completely: you'll have an opportunity to give your creative and artistic
side a chance to surface by joining the APA Art Association and displaying your work in the association's annual exhibit,
which is held at APA's annual meeting.
"In Proper Balance" by T.A. Flanagan, M.D., was the Best of Show winning sculpture at last year's APA Art Association Exhibit
in New Orleans.
The APA Art Association was founded by the late Norman Schulack in 1969 in Miami. Membership is open to all APA members, their
spouses or significant others, and full-time staff members of APA and the Canadian Psychiatric Association.
