Toy Soldier Drawing
To Appear at CSAT
Funding Meeting

In her continuing efforts to tap into the power of art, Patricia Santora, PhD, Public Health Advisor at SAMHSA, plans to display six of the works from Addiction and Art at the annual meeting of the grant division of CSAT in Arlington, Virginia, from November 15-17, 2010.  At the request of the project officers, the Toy Soldier drawing will be represented by a full-scale reproduction.

In an email communication with the artist, Dr. Santora explained, “Numerous topics on substance abuse treatment will be discussed during this 3-day meeting that will draw about 500 participants.  As you know, a typical scientific poster display highlights innovative prevention and treatment initiatives, and the meeting will feature scientific posters from the 140 federal grants that were awarded on this topic.  Our plan is to create a small addiction art gallery that includes…art as part of this scientific session–addiction art integrated with addiction science.”

Dr. Santora looks forward to upcoming opportunities for sharing the Toy Soldier drawing and other Addiction and Art images at meetings of substance abuse professionals.

After being exhibited at SAMHSA headquarters in Rockville, Maryland, going on to be part of the show at the annual meeting of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence in San Juan, Puerto Rico, being pictured for January in the 2009 Art and Addiction Calendar, the drawing “Toy Soldier” along with “The Annunciation” appear in the recently published Addiction and Art.

Addiction and Art puts a human face on addiction through the creative work of individuals who have been touched by it.  A panel of addiction scientists, artists, and professionals from the art world selected the 61 pieces included here from more than 1,000 submissions.  Accompanied by a written statement  from the artist, each creation is emblematic of the destructive power of addiction and the regenerative power of recovery.”  (April 2010 Art in America advertisement)
