Hi, How Are You Day is coming up and we know just how to celebrate.

The holiday was created in 2018 in celebration of the late Daniel Johnston — the local artist who famously created the “Jeremiah The Innocent” mural — on his birthday: January 22.

Hi, How Are You Day — and adjoining nonprofit the Hi, How Are You Project — were created to remove the stigma around mental health through live music (another one of Johnston’s talents) and intentional conversation.
