    Traveling community exhibit To Really See opens at the University of Minnesota


    Art challenges stigma around mental illness and the medication-taking experience


    Minneapolis, Minn. (December 21, 2017) Avivo is proud to announce that the traveling exhibition To Really See: Exploring the Medication-Taking Experience has opened with the University of Minnesota at the Bio-Medical Library (located on the East Bank campus). To Really See was initially hosted by Hennepin County Library Minneapolis Central (August September 2017). This run with the University of Minnesota presents over thirty pieces of art. It shows on the 2nd floor of the Bio- Medical Library until April 30, 2018, with a public reception on Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018 from 5:30-7:30 PM. In addition, over ten pieces of separate art from the project has been on exhibit at St. Luke’s Hospital in Duluth since October 2017, and will display until March 29, 2018.


    The exhibition is a project curated by Jes Reyes, the Coordinator of Avivo’s ArtWorks program, and co-organized by Paul Ranelli, a Professor of Social Pharmacy at the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy. Both met at the 2016 Minnesota Public Health Association annual meeting.
