To highlight National Mental Health Week, the Lennoxville Library, in collaboration with Mon Shack… Mes choix… Mon avenir! (Mon Shack) will present an online art show organized by the artist Maïthé Cyr-Morin.
Cyr-Morin, a student in Fine Arts at Bishop’s University, and a resident at Mon Shack, has organized an inclusive project that brings together different community members to create a collective work of art to address the theme of mental health. Deeply engaged in the community, the Lennoxville Library and Mon Shack are proud to support this initiative that aims to be both artistic and community-oriented.
During workshops held at Mon Shack in March and April, a dozen participants used a variety of techniques to personalize t-shirts with words and images in order to give voice to their understanding of mental health.
A virtual vernissage will be held on Zoom on Thursday, May 7 at the following link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89267818135. During the vernissage, Cyr-Morin and several participants will discuss their artistic process. The show will be online until June 1 2020.
Visitors are also invited to express their thoughts by leaving comments on the exhibit’s website https://cycledelicat.weebly.com/ .
This virtual art show was created as a collaboration between Mon Shack, Lennoxville Library, and the City of Sherbrooke.
