2023 stART the conversation art exhibition

May 19, 2023 | McEnery Automation (607 Tauromee Avenue) | 5 - 9 P.M.

About the Exhibition

Wyandot Behavioral Health Network is hosting an art exhibition during Mental Health Awareness Month to stART the conversation about mental health through art. We are searching for community artists who have a message to share about mental health. It is our mission to lift up diverse perspectives, engage our community in honest conversation about mental health, create change and raise awareness through art. We are calling for artists to submit their mental health-related art work. We would be honored to lift up your voice through this curated exhibition.

The stART the conversation art exhibition will take place on Friday, May 19, at McEnery Automation as part of the Downtown KCK Third Friday Art Walk in the Strawberry Hill neighborhood.
