FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana (MHANI) announced their second annual Art of Hope exhibition. The exhibition will be shown in online galleries and displayed at the Jeffrey R. Krull Gallery at the Allen County Public Library from October 19 – November 15.

MHANI is asking regional artists to submit their interpretations of mental wellness and mental illness. The deadline for submissions is August 31.

“Artists do not need to have a history or diagnosis of a mental health condition, substance use disorder, or other disability,” the press release said.
