The belief that everyone should be valued and heard is a driving factor in Lisa Smith's passion at MHANI.

Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana is presenting an exhibit by artists who have experienced mental health challenges.

Called The Art of Hope, the show opens this Thursday evening at Manchester University's Fort Wayne Campus and runs through January of 2020.

Besides a wide assortment of two and three dimensional mediums on display, the opening celebration will include an interpretive performance by the Fort Wayne Dance Collective.

Earlier this month, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with MHANI's executive director, Lisa Smith and contributing artist, Cynthia Gabbard to talk about the power of this therapeutic process.
