The I Am More: Facing Stigma photography exhibition, created and sponsored by the Yellow Tulip Project, features black and white portraits of people who are dealing with mental health challenges personally or through the experiences of family or friends. The individuals–musicians, artists, nature lovers, parents, and more–are dedicated to challenging assumptions and stigma around mental illness and what mental illness “looks like.” The FortySeven Main Street Artists demonstrate the inspirational power of abstract self expression in paint. Renowned photographer Gisela Gamper documents her personal journey of love and mourning. Bennington College Visiting Professor Terry Boddie takes a complex approach to the legacy of the transatlantic slave trade. Nationally recognized photographer Carl Austin Hyatt shows portraits made from two decades of travels in the Andes of Peru. In mixed media portraits, students from area schools present themselves as they want to be seen.
