They say “a picture is worth a thousand words”– the theme of this show celebrates the relationship between art and the human mind through the use of art as a form of nonverbal communication. For some, visual images are a platform for advocacy, to share raised awareness of a social cause, or to express a political message. Art is a means of self-expression when it portrays complex emotions, thoughts, or a state of mind. For others, the process of making art is itself a form of therapy, either to improve mental health or as an exercise in mindfulness. Whether as a platform for advocacy or as a means of self-expression, Speak Your Mind is a celebration of art as a robust visual language. This show coincides with Mental Health Awareness Month.
