The Art of Recovery is an event to feature artwork created by individuals who have been diagnosed with mental illness. Brief, interactive videos placed throughout the exhibit will further educate attendees about the stigma associated with mental illness, the power of art as an aspect of their recovery, and other mental health-related issues. Participants will enjoy an opportunity to meet some of the exhibit's artists, followed by a screening of a short documentary film "Brushes with Life," by filmmaker Philip Brubaker. The event is funded by a grant from the UNC Charlotte Chancellor's Diversity Fund.
