Community Voices is an exhibition of stories and artwork by ten artists whose lives are affected by mental illness.  For some, mental health challenges impact them directly while others have loved ones living with mental illness. Each piece in the exhibition depicts a personal journey of tension, resiliency and hope. Community Voices is a testament to how making art can heal and transform the mind.

Featuring audio and video components to further enhance the powerful narratives of the participating artists, Community Voices will be on view in the SCC Studio display cases September 18 through December 7, 2015.
