CLEVELAND, OH - Cleveland's very own contemporary artist, Aaron D. Williams' reflective exhibition on mental health continues to be The Museum of Contemporary (moCa) highlight until August 15.

The "Aawful Aaron" exhibition aims to reflect and create a deep understanding of the mental health struggles, particularly how it applies to Black males. Williams uses sports such as football, basketball, chess, and sword fencing to convey and express his works.

"Aawful Aaron" recounts a "game against anxiety" through different perspectives in order to bring sports fans together in understanding mental health issues in subtle ways through drawings, paintings, and sculpture.

Williams is one of the artists curated by The Museum of Creative Human Art (MCHA), who is currently launching an institutional residency pilot with moCa from July 2021 to June 2022. MCHA and moCa are co-creating to raise the voices of underserved artists by uplifting new perspectives and styles of the artists. Both organizations have a mutual dedication to improving humanity through art.

"... I am confident that this residency will serve as a compelling new model for institutional collaboration, learning, and growth, here and beyond," states Megan Lykins Reich, moCa's Interim Executive Director. "

The Museum of Creative Human Art is an agent of change in the art world. They focus on presenting the diversity of artists, creative spaces, programs, and perspectives intended to serve and inspire Black creators. Their goal in the residency is to elevate and scale the movement. During the residency, MCHA will be presenting seven exhibitions, including "Aawful Aaron."
