IN THE ART GALLERY
Mental States examines the realities of mental health and Blackness in our society.
“I have the natural urge to create art from the inside out; to make visible the hidden feelings, attitudes and functionings of everyday life that are influenced by illnesses or traumatic events. Without proper treatment, a person’s mental and physical health can fluctuate, causing substantial changes. These changes create a feeling of desolation that not only affects the individual in the composition, but also the world around them. This dystopia is the subject matter of my art.”
This exhibit is free and will be open to the public for self-guided tours from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Friday. Contact John Robinson-Miller IV at 919.515.1451 or via email at email@example.com if you are interested in setting up a facilitated tour or workshop during the week or on the weekend.
