The Life of the Mind

Exhibit curated by:

Andrea Melvin, Grand Rapids Public Museum, amelvin@grpm.org

Display period: 2017-2018

 

Impact Upon Exhibition Trend:

Life of the Mind includes historic and archival material, yet this seminal exhibition represents an important bridge toward a new generation of mental health exhibitions for its inclusion of content that develops mental health literacy as a means toward wellness. Its development is a noteworthy example of an entrepreneurial curator working with limited financial resources and in conjunction with students from Calvin College, and others. The innovativeness of this exhibition attracted notice from the New York Times website. An early example of Midwestern leadership of the exhibition trend.
