The National Art Exhibitions by the Mentally Ill (NAEMI), founded in 1988, celebrates its 35th anniversary with a compelling display that showcases the raw and unfiltered beauty of outsider art. This genre, often marginalized and overlooked, emerges as a vibrant and essential voice in artistic dialogue. The exhibition features the unique works of 25 internationally acclaimed artists, including Echo MacCallister and Mr. Imagination from the USA, Ramon Losa from Spain, and notable Cuban artists Jorge Alberto Cadi "El Buzo," Julian Espinosa Rebollido "Wayacon," and Hector Gallo, along with Sebastian Ferreira from Paraguay.

NAEMI's collection showcases the diversity and historical context of outsider art, which often illustrates creativity from socially marginalized figures who often experienced mental illnesses, and challenged the status quo. The 35th Anniversary exhibition "A Celebration of Outsider Art" aims to highlight the artistic accomplishments of these artists within the context of outsider art.

Art Programming for this exhibition includes a Panel Discussion: Art and Wellness on May 9th from 6 – 7pm at the Studio 18 Art Complex in Pembroke Pines. The panel will feature Senator Nan Rich, Mayor of Broward County, Silvia Quintana, CEO of Broward Behavioral Health Coalition, and Susan Nyamora, CEO of South Florida Wellness Network.

Studio 18 Art Complex is a multi-faceted art space offering affordable studios for emerging and mid-career artists. Inside studios range in size, are well lit and equipped sinks. Resident artists participate in exhibitions throughout the year drawing crowds of people, while also enjoying 24-hour secure access and the ability to teach their craft in classrooms and have full use of the artists' lounge.
