Art of Being ME

The Burrell Foundation, in collaboration with artist Randy Bacon, is proud to present the Art of Being ME movement.


Through his 7 Billion Ones series, Bacon has used multimedia storytelling to raise awareness about homelessness, Down syndrome, domestic violence, and other harsh realities in our communities. The Art of Being ME exhibit, sponsored by the Burrell Foundation, showcases personal stories of more than 20 individuals who have lived experience with mental health conditions or diagnoses.


The Burrell Foundation hopes this powerful, meaningful art educates the community about mental health, normalize the experiences of those who live with challenges, and inspire others to share their stories. It will be available to the public in September at Stephens College in Columbia, Mo.
