“Raleigh’s Living Room: Rest, Reflect, Respond”
Visual Artist: Jose Manuel Cruz
The City of Raleigh Museum invites you into the museum to find rest, reflect on your life, and respond to prompts aimed at focusing on your mental health. In its newest temporary exhibit, “Raleigh’s Living Room: Rest, Reflect, Respond”, the museum is focusing on art therapy and the need for self-care during these very stressful times. Every month, the exhibit will feature a prompt that asks visitors to reflect on a certain aspect of their lives then draw a response on the dry erase wall. Additionally, each month a local artist will respond to the same prompt and their art will be visible for the month.
