PostSecret and Jennifer Ivanovic: Stigma Stains

Sat Jan 13, 2018 at 12:00 pm - Sat Feb 24, 2018 at 6:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00pm, repeating until Feb 24, 2018

In 2005, Frank Warren started PostSecret, an ongoing community art project where strangers are invited to mail in their secrets on postcards, anonymously. Twelve years later, it has become a worldwide phenomenon with over a million postcards having landed in Frank’s mailbox.
For our PostSecret exhibition, Fort Collins community members were invited to submit their secrets to the gallery, pending two stipulations: it is a true secret and they had never shared it with anyone before. Each anonymous contribution to the exhibition helps tear down societal stigmas on taboo subjects such as mental illness and trauma, while simultaneously facilitating a feeling of human connection between the postcard writer and the viewer.
The PostSecret exhibit is being held relating to the live event, PostSecret: The Show, on February 9.

Jennifer Ivanovic: Stigma Stains is a traveling art installation of vibrant, enlightening paintings and corresponding written narratives, illustrating the struggles of real people with different forms of mental illness. The project started by collecting mental illness secrets from personal interviews and website submissions.
