Artists + Mental Health

 I visited the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts today and came across a work by an artist who spent decades hospitalized for schizophrenia:

Not coincidentally (May is mental health month),  there is an exhibit up in the Alabama Capitol Building showing work by artists who are/were also dealing with mental health issues.

 It's located in what was the Alabama Courts law library, though it and the courts moved out in 1940.

HERE. is information about visiting. (Note, it is best to arrive no later than 3:30pm to take a tour).
