Washington, D.C. – As the U.S. Conference of Mayors concludes its annual Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C. on January 26, Mrs. Karen Pence, Second Lady of the United States, will deliver remarks to a plenary meeting of bipartisan mayors from cities large and small. The remarks, “Art Therapy: Healing with the HeART,” will raise awareness among local leaders about the mental health benefits of art therapy.

Mrs. Pence has observed art therapy programs in Canada, Japan, Germany, Belgium, Indonesia, Australia, South Korea, and across the United States. Her remarks will be on the record and open to media. Members of the media are encouraged to register in advance.

The 86th Annual Winter Meeting, held in Washington, DC from January 24-26, will convene mayors from both sides of the aisle, from cities and towns rural, urban and suburban, for sessions on a range of issues – including infrastructure, immigration and DACA renewal, the opioid crisis, disaster preparedness and recovery, and the economic future of cities and the future of work.
