Wellness Center Hosts Here Comes the Sun Event

The Marshall University Wellness Center will provide young artists with the opportunity to promote their work and well-being.

The event, titled Here Comes the Sun, will be held on Friday, Oct. 13, from 4-7 p.m. at Harless Dining Hall, showcases student art. Participating students are asked to share how that art has helped their well-being.

“As we show the art, we are asking that the students who present talk not only on the art piece, but how art has helped their own well-being and their wellness,” student Kennedy Allen said.

“The event will be centered around art, but the roof of it will be how art influences our wellness,” Allen said.

Wellness coordinator Kaye Godbey said that this event is a fun way to celebrate one’s talent and to have fun.

“This is going to be a fun event where students can celebrate their own and other’s talents,” Godbey said. “Participating in the arts and performing are great and healthy ways to recharge your batteries andelevate the happy chemicals in your brain.”

According to the event calendar on the Marshall University website, art such as paintings, poetry and digital art must be submitted on the website.

As for what students can expect from the event, Godbey said, “Plan to do art, laugh and clap and support others, even if you can’t get up the nerve to jump on stage.”
