Mental Health Monday: Artist Oakley Boycott fills us in on ‘Echo,’ endurance art, and community mental health

(Lander, WY) – Mental Health Monday, the weekly segment on KOVE 1330 AM / 107.7 FM’s Coffee Time, hosted by Vince Tropea, continued today with guest Oakley Boycott, who stopped by to talk about Echo, a multi-day endurance art piece centered around community mental health.

According to Boycott, “The choice of endurance art is a direct reflection of how I experience my own relationship with my mental health manifested into an art form. Given the lengths of endurance we as human beings maneuver every day in relation to our mental health, choosing endurance art as a medium for ECHO was a natural path to take.”


Boycott discussed the mental state they were in during the conception of the piece, how that period of time helped shape and motivate the direction of the performance, and the overall importance of normalizing community mental health discussions in an uninterrupted space.
