[Photo Story] This Spring’s HUB-Robeson Galleries Exhibits

“The Anxiety Project” is a collection of drawings displaying the struggles of mental health. “When the Bough Breaks,” meanwhile, is a gallery of compiled artwork from multiple artists accompanied by poems, attempting to draw attention to the need for trees in our current climate crisis.

Both can be currently on display in the HUB-Robeson Galleries, as shown below.

Dr. Bill Doan’s work, “The Anxiety Project,” represents his struggle with mental health. He has used art to help visualize and cope with his mental illness.

There is an interactive aspect to “The Anxiety Project,” as visitors can draw about their own mental health in booklets provided. There are also goodie bags with information about CAPS (Penn State’s Counseling & Psychological Services), a stress ball, and more available in the gallery.

“When the Bough Breaks” is a collection of works organized by Susanne Slavick. The pieces of art and poetry are meant to communicate the need for conversation around protecting the climate and the trees.

“The Anxiety Project” will be on display until March 14 in the HUB-Robeson Gallery. “When the Bough Breaks” will be in the Art Alley in the HUB until May 9.
