EDRC's 2024 Be-You-tiful Contest and Exhibit

Various Artists

Through June 16th

Now on View in the

Digital Gallery


The Eating Disorder Resource Centers (EDRC) Be-You-tiful contest will be on view in the museum's Digital Gallery. The entries (poems, essays, video, and art) address how social media affects our youth. Bay area students were invited to submit pieces that explored how social media and the world around them influences self-perception.

About 50% of preadolescent girls and 30% of preadolescent boys report disliking their bodies, according to the National Eating Disorders Association, and the unattainable standards set by social media are directly tied to this rise in body-related struggles. The EDRC aims to promote self and body acceptance, increase media literacy, and empower youth to challenge harmful diet culture ideals head-on, all of which can play a pivotal role in preventing the onset of eating disorders among younger generations.
