ARTIST STATEMENT: My favorite part of this work is the mask falling off. It represents breaking free from limited to ideas one may have of others. I felt like my artwork flowed easily when I broke free from expectations, allowing myself to show how I feel. Trying to be perfect and then being able to break away from that by just being me.

  • How Does It Feel?

    The goal of the student art exhibit is to foster the connection between mental health and the arts. How Does it Feel? Is the question we asked student artists at the Chicago Excel Academy - Roseland school to answer. We wanted to know what mental health means to them. What does it look and feel like visually? Students work was framed and displayed at our inaugural Mardi Gras for Mental Health Gala for patrons to view and bid on. Proceeds from any work sold will be split 50/50 between the student and as donation deposited into our Therapy Fund.
