To Really See Video Spotlight + Closing Panel Discussion Next Week

ArtWorks is proud to share a special video that features Hennepin County Library - Minneapolis Central and ArtWorks staff speaking about the "To Really See" exhibition and its community-focused and stigma-busting intentions. It also includes short interviews with exhibiting artists. Also, please consider coming out to our closing panel discussion, Perspectives on To Really See, next week to celebrate this compelling project and meet artists and organizers from the show. Syl Jones will be facilitating the conversation.

Closing Night Panel Discussion Details: Wednesday, September 27 / 6pm
Presented by Spectrum ArtWorks (soon to be Avivo ArtWorks), the exhibit “To Really See” in Cargill Hall explores medication use stories. Through artwork and accompanying events, the show works to raise awareness and challenge mental health stigma regarding the medication-taking experience. Celebrate the closing of the exhibition with this panel discussion moderated by Syl Jones (Hennepin County Medical Center), which will reflect on the artwork in the exhibition and engage multiple perspectives in conversation about mental health and medication use. Panelists include Paul Ranelli (University of Minnesota), Marilyn Dornfeld (NAMI MN), Dr. Reba Peoples (RESOURCE), Christi Furnas (RESOURCE/Exhibiting artist), Martha Bird (Exhibiting Artist), and Holly Rapoport (Exhibiting Artist).

"To Really See" initially presents with the Hennepin County Library’s Minneapolis Central location (August-September 2017), then at St. Luke’s Hospital, Duluth (October 2017-April 2018) and then with the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities (December-April 2018).
