About the Project

The Mind’s Eye: A LACMA Poster Project looks inclusively at art and creativity as they intersect with a diverse range of perspectives, taking into account the unique experience, imaginative potential and specific struggles that may come with neurodiversity. Developed as part of WE RISE 2021 in honor of Mental Health Awareness month, LACMA has commissioned graphic works by five artists to be displayed on vinyl clings installed along the construction fence on Wilshire Boulevard. Scoli Acosta, Andy Alexander, The Revolution School, Favianna Rodriguez and Kerry Tribe all use a range of aesthetic strategies—from figurative painting, to text-based conceptual works, to game structures—to create a series of posters that evoke the myriad possibilities for meaningful communication within human experience.

As a movement and awareness campaign increasingly led by younger generations on social media, the discussion around neurodiversity seeks to create awareness that different cognitive and affective processing styles should be understood and celebrated rather than stigmatized. At this moment, as we collectively work to envision and shape a future that centers diversity, equity and inclusion; a deeper understanding of neurodiversity can offer models of resilience; authenticity and innovation.

WE RISE is the annual Mental Health Awareness Month initiative of the Los Angeles County Department of Health’s ongoing WHY WE RISE campaign, funded by sponsorships and Prop 63.

WE RISE honors the profound contribution of Tongva Elder and WE RISE artist Julia Bogany who passed away March 28, 2021 in Los Angeles. We uplift her voice as an incredible leader who used arts and culture to educate, elevate and build community.

“We, the Indigenous People, the Traditional Caretakers of this landscape are the direct descendants of the First People who formed our lands, our worlds during creation time. We have always been here. Our Ancestors prepared and became the landscapes and worlds for the coming of humans with order, knowledge and gifts embedded in the landscape. Our Ancestors imbued us, who now live here, with the responsibility and obligations of our original instructions as told to us in our creation stories. We are guided by protocol and etiquette to be part of, take care of, and ensure the welfare of the NATURE, the extended family and community defined in its most inclusive expression. We pass those teachings and responsibilities onto our children, grandchildren and many generations to come.”

- Julia Bogany. October, 2020.
