Mindful: Exploring Mental Health Through Art

November 18, 2017 - April 22, 2018

Host Jared Bowen of WGBH’s Open Studio and artist Meredith Grimsley

Mindful: Exploring Mental Health Through Art investigates the topics of anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and tendencies, and PTSD through craft expression. The exhibition explores the impact that mental illness has on society, and how the arts can encourage positive self-expression and guide effective mental health promotion and treatment. The project also examines links between mental disorders and artistic tendencies through the inclusion of artworks made by those who have been diagnosed with mental illnesses and those who have not. This traveling exhibition was organized by the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA.
