Director's Creativity Showcase

Directors Creativity Showcase, Lower Lair Lounge
    
       Sponsored by the Missouri Mental Health Foundation and the Department of Mental Health, the 2012 Director's Creativity Showcase features award winning art created by persons who cope with mental illness. For the second consecutive year, the MU Student Center proudly hosts this exhibit from November 19th through December 4th. According to Dr. David Wallace, Director of the MU Counseling Center, “The Showcase celebrates the talents of individuals who struggle daily with mental illness, developmental disabilities, or addictions. Hosting the exhibit is one way that we, as a campus, can reduce the stigma that is often associated with mental illness.”  

--A special thanks goes out to Patty Henry (Executive Director of the Missouri Mental Health Foundation) and to all of the talented artists who participated in this touring exhibition.
