FINE LINE: Mental Health/Mental Illness Exhibit Opening

Sunday, May 1, 2016

2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

HPS Member are invited to the Special Exhibit Opening on Sunday, May 1, 2016 from 2 – 4 p.m. at The Health Museum. Read more about this interactive art exhibit below. Email: to confirm your attendance.

"FINE LINE: Mental Health / Mental Illness" is a documentary of voices, stories and portraits that confronts stereotypes and reveals the courage and fragility of those living with mental illnesses. Photographer Michael Nye spent four years photographing and recording stories. Schizophrenia, depression, obsessive-compulsive, anxiety and bi-polar disorders are among the experiences considered. In simple and eloquent detail, the 46 black-and-white portraits and voices draw you closer into each life by addressing and exploring many topics: family, confusion, pain, abuse, treatment and healing.

"It's a mesmerizing experience — to stare into the eyes of the person so artfully portrayed, to listen to the voice and, in some small way, to get to know the individual beyond the mentally ill label, the person who's so much more than the illness." Joe Holley, Editorial - Express News, San Antonio, Texas

"FINE LINE: Mental Health / Mental Illness” will be on display at The Health Museum May 1, 2016 - June 30, 2016.
