Join us in celebrating an exploration of Optimism. An array of artists have united through their embrace of the color ‘INT-O Yellow’ (International Optimism Yellow) with the shared intention of shining a light on Depression.

Special guest speakers Mayor Robert H. Conley, NJ Gubernatorial Candidate, Phil Murphy and CEO of Madison-Area YMCA, Dianne Mann.

Music, snacks and refreshments provided thanks to the generous contributions of Whole Foods and Gary's Wine & Marketplace!

This exhibition also marks the kickoff of Madison's Paint the Town Yellow initiative: a town-wide celebration of International Day of Happiness (March 20) and recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month (April). 

A portion of all art proceeds benefits the Community Mental Health Initiative.
