HeART & Mind

October 31, 2019 – January 12, 2020

As the preeminent visual arts center in Fairfield County, Silvermine plays a pivotal role as an inclusive gathering place that deepens understanding and builds community through the arts. Our exhibitions are springboards for conversations about socially relevant humanities ideas that affect our neighbors and those they love.

The  HeART & Mind exhibition and accompanying programs will engage our community in conversations about mental health and the healing power of art. It will open a window to creativity and well-being by bringing together works by an exceptional array of artists who are exploring mental health issues—intimacy and inwardness, inclusion and exclusion, anxiety and serenity, love and loss, addiction and recovery, and the yearning to understand and accept ourselves and to connect in an authentic way to those around us.

The exhibition and programs are free and open to the public. We thank the New Canaan Community Foundation for their generous support.
