In November 2023, MHANI hosted our fifth annual exhibit joining the arts and mental health to raise awareness and inspire hope. We partnered with Purdue Fort Wayne to feature our exhibit in the Visual Arts Building, November 9th- January 7th. Our Opening Ceremony featured 10 artists who shared their journeys with mental health and the healing power of art. The exhibit also featured written accounts by the artists, explaining the backgrounds of each piece.

Art of Hope is an art exhibit highlighting local artists and sharing inspiring stories about recovery, healing, and hope.

Participating artists will share works that delve into the world of mental health and mental health challenges. The exhibit and accompanying events will encourage candid conversations around mental illness and wellness.

Art of Hope will provide an opportunity for artists and visitors alike to express their mental health experiences and struggles.
