Join us for the final exhibition of body-based artworks by Access Living consumers. This exhibition is the culmination of a spring body casting workshop hosted by the Arts & Culture project. Artists were encouraged to explore their relationship with their own bodies, engage with art materials in creative ways, and consider the connection between mental health and the body.
