The Burrell Foundation, in collaboration with artist Randy Bacon, is proud to present the Art of Being ME movement. This exhibit features personal stories of more than 25 individuals who share their lived experiences with mental health and substance use. The Burrell Foundation hopes this powerful, meaningful art educates communities about mental health, normalizes the experiences of those who live with challenges, and inspires others to share their stories.
