New Art Exhibit Has "Nothing to Hide"

by Buffy Lockette | Aug 25, 2014
The touring photography exhibit NOTHING TO HIDE: Mental Illness In The Family will run through Aug. 29 in AUM's Global Education Center, located across from Taylor Center 230.

Created by Family Diversity Projects Inc., a nonprofit organization based in Amherst, Mass., the exhibit provides those coping with mental illness and their families an opportunity to come out of the shadows and into the public eye. The stories of children, siblings, parents, grandparents and extended family members demonstrate strength, courage, integrity, and accomplishment in the face of adversity and stigma. 

The exhibit consists of photographs by Gigi Kaeser and text from interviews conducted by Jean Beard and Peggy Gillespie with individuals and their families whose lives have been affected by schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, major depression, and other serious brain disorders.

Admission to the exhibit is free and open to the public. Gallery hours at weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. An opening reception will be held August 26 at 11 a.m.
