Oakley and the LAC are teaming up with Jenny Reeves-Johnson and ATLAS (AT Lander Arts and Sciences) on an upcoming ceramics mural art project, that seeks community feedback concerning personal stories on the current state of mental health.

Reeves and Boycott will have a booth set up for folks to give that feedback at this weekend’s 2nd Annual Lander Pig Roast, which has a theme of mental health awareness this year.
