The (W)hole in our HeARTs

November 6, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Art benefits everyone and this interactive event focuses on ways to actively integrate art into personal and community life to combat loneliness and loss.

Coping with the loneliness, isolation, depression, anxiety, fear, and loss that has been a part of our collective lives for more than a year is hard. But we don’t need to face these challenges alone. Artists who have experienced mental health issues will showcase work that invites the community to share their own stories and feelings. Through two exhibitions (one virtual and the other in a gallery setting), community-created art project, writings, spoken activities, and more, participants—including families!—are invited to experience and create art that aims to mend the holes in our hearts and inspire a sense of wholeness.

Family activities on Saturday include printmaking, coloring pages, Zen bracelets, affirmation rocks, and more!

Exhibit open Nov. 4-12.
First Friday exhibition viewing on Nov. 5 from 5-9pm. (2nd Floor Switzer Gallery)
Family Day activities on Nov. 6 from 10am-12pm (1st Floor Stokol Gallery & 2nd Floor Switzer Gallery)
Extended exhibit days/hours: Nov. 8-12, 9am-5pm

A partnership between Ivy Tech Community College Fine Arts Program—Indianapolis, Ivy Tech Community College Early Childhood Education Program—Indianapolis, Circle City Industrial Complex, Arts Council of Indianapolis, and Indiana Writers Center.
