Featuring a collection of postcards anonymously submitted from around the world, the Pauly Friedman Art Gallery at Misericordia University is presenting “PostSecretX,” an art installation that explores the impact of secrets, secret-sharing, and artistic expression of secrets among young adults from April 6 through June 9. The exhibit explores the power of secrets, open discussions about issues surrounding mental health, and helps promote a supportive campus environment for students who are affected by mental health issues. Founded by Frank Warren in 2004, “PostSecret” is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of an artistically decorated postcard. To date, more than 1 million postcards offering highly personal secrets have been mailed to Warren from around the world. Collections have been displayed at the White House and Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C., and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Many of them are now being circulated in museums, colleges and galleries throughout the U.S. A nationally known Active Minds speaker and author, Warren will present a free lecture and book signing on Wednesday, April 24, at 7:30 p.m. in Lemmond Theatre in Walsh Hall. He will discuss the history of “PostSecret” and encourage students to speak out and create support networks to assist each other. Warren has appeared on “Good Morning America,” “The Today Show,” CBC and BBC to talk about the project that has raised more than $1 million for suicide prevention. His efforts earned him the Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011, and the opportunity to speak at the White House in 2013 to share his thoughts on mental wellness. All six of his “PostSecret” books have been featured on the New Your Times bestsellers’ list, with “PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death and God,” reaching number one in the rankings. Parental discretion is advised since some of the postcards deal with suicide, substance abuse and topics that may be sensitive to young visitors.
