This fall, CNF and the Child Neurology Society  are partnering with the Hidden Truths Project for 1:26 the Art of Epilepsy exhibits on September 21 in Newport Beach, California and in Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 12.

According to the Hidden Truths Project:

“The focus of these two exhibits will be on transitional care of young people with epilepsy, as they grow from childhood into early adulthood. This is an area of vital importance in their journey of becoming an independent adult. Each  exhibition will be a collage of works reflecting the stories of children, teens, and adults in this transformational journey.

Now in its 8th year, the Hidden Truths Project is once again expanding its outreach to Engage, Empower, and Educate through Art, about the hidden truths of living with epilepsy.  Expansion is made possible through the creative ingenuity and tremendous support of our global community of artists living with the challenges of epilepsy.

In this call for artists, we invite all artists to depict what inspires your creative edge and how epilepsy has influenced your art.

This call is open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists.  All art mediums are invited — from photography, wall sculpture, ceramics, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc. all submissions will be considered.”

Artists can apply by sending the completed  Artist Participation Form along with a brief statement and jpegs of their art to Dr. Julie Thompson-Dobkin at

The deadlines for applications are June 15, 2019 for the Newport Beach exhibit, and August 1, 2019 for the Minneapolis exhibit.

Hidden Truths Project, the Child Neurology Foundation and Child Neurology Society look forward to the exciting changes in store in 2019, as together we expand these artists’ voices on the national and international stage!
