What's Left is a multi-media art exhibit featuring the works of over 35 of Minnesota's highly recognized and emerging artists each depicting the pain and suffering left behind from suicide.

What's Left will create a proactive dialogue on suicide and mental illness to break the stigma that surrounds them. 

Artwork included in the exhibit will range from painting, glass and wood sculpture, pottery, poetry, printmaking, photography, drawing, fiber art, graffiti, dolls and more.

There will also be a one person, sound-proof communication booth where attendees can listen to recorded stories from survivors and people who have attempted suicide and lived another day.  They will also be able to record their own comments and stories.   

Risks and challenges

Gaining the support of educators to develop an implement curriculum, including the components of mental illness and suicide prevention, that will compliment existing Health/Psychology curricula in middle and high schools.
