For the Love of…features new work by twelve Spectrum ArtWorks artists. Living with mental illness is merely an element that brings these gifted artists together; it does not define the individual. The work in this exhibition explores what inspires creative impulses…revealing their own personal interpretations of what motivates them in life and in art. Each artist brings with them a wealth of diverse experiences that provides background to what has profound meaning and love in their lives. The works utilize a variety of different mediums and styles ranging from geometric abstraction to mixed media installation.

Spectrum ArtWorks is a non-profit visual art program in the heart of Minneapolis that provides studio space and community for artists living with a mental illness. In addition to producing amazing art Spectrum ArtWorks artists work to educate the public and break down stigma associated with mental illness.
