Description

The artwork is inspired by the motto Hope, Wellness and Recovery. This phrase has been translated into the Department of Mental Health’s 12 service languages that represent the clients served. The intertwining of these words is meant to inspire the idea that there is a place for everyone at the Downtown Mental Health Center.

The project includes site-specific object creation, curatorial installation, design, blogging, and event-making, to bring together disparate communities through the great lens of Family. http://www.broodwork.com/
