In celebration of Mental Health Awareness month, Missouri Institute of Mental Health at UMSL (MIMH) and the St. Louis Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center (SLPRC) are collaborating to produce a “Mental Health Awareness Art Showcase: Connecting Communities Through Art.” The showcase will display numerous works of art guided by the concept question: “How has mental illness affected your life?” The goal of the show is to highlight mental illness and mental health to the community. Artists from around the St. Louis region and works in a variety of mediums will be featured.
The show will be on display from May 19th through the 30th from 11 am to 5 pm at the University of Missouri-St. Louis’s (UMSL) Gallery 210 located at 44 East Drive, TCC One University Blvd. St. Louis, MO 63121. On May 30th, from 1 to 4 pm, there will be a closing ceremony, free and open to the public, where the artists will be on hand to discuss their works and the stories behind them. The closing ceremony will also feature live performances from local spoken word artists and musicians.
This event is sponsored by The Missouri Institute of Mental Health.
