The Mind's Eye

"There is no them and us. There is only us," says San Antonio artist Michael Nye. No, he's not talking about the race, age or gender issues that we see in society every day. He's talking about mental illness, from anxiety to depression, from schizophrenia to bipolar disorder. After losing two friends to suicide, Nye spent four years documenting, both on film and tape, the stories of people suffering from mental illness. Now, together with Mental Health Connection of Tarrant County, Nye brings us Fine Line: Mental Health/Mental Illness. Featuring 55 life-size photos as well as audio clips from each interview, Fine Line helps battle the stigma associated with mental illness by putting a face and a voice to it, whether it's an architect, a prisoner, a mother or a homeless person. Fine Line will be on display Saturday through December 3 at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, 1501 Montgomery St. Admission is free to the public; however, the exhibit may not be appropriate for young children. Call 817-255-9300 or visit fortworthmuseum.org.
Sept. 23-Dec. 3
