Impact Upon Exhibition Trend:

Deconstructing Stigma is unquestionably the most viewed exhibition about mental health in the United States. Its central feature is its floor-to-ceiling portraits of real people who are publicly acknowledging their own mental health challenges, or those of a loved one. This collaboration between McLean Hospital and Massport represents the most significant example of an exhibition “breaking out” of the realm of a traditional museum location and into public space. The majority of portraits are everyday people, though the exhibition also includes celebrities such as Howie Mandel, and former NFL player Brandon Marshall.
