Winnipeg artists with mental illness mourn Williams' passing
Winnipeg exhibit showcases work of artists with mental illness
The death of 63-year-old actor Robin Williams is being felt by artists suffering from mental illness here in Winnipeg.
Nigel Bart is running the project and also suffers from mental illness.
"He was a brilliant artist," said Bart. "You’ll find a lot of brilliant artists that have mental health issues and, unfortunately sometimes, depression, drug addiction can lead to really sad things.”
Bart said mental illness can be a silent killer.
