Metro Gallery near 13th and N is honoring mental health patients across Lincoln by displaying their artwork Friday.

From water colors to oil pastels, about 50 pieces of work will be showcased. The event is free to the public.

"I like to express myself, I like other artists, I like to look at drawings, I like creativity," patient Nigel Magor said.

"Art is a good recovery tool," James Terry of the Mental Health Assoc. of Nebraska said. "Art, music, dance, all those things help people recover nice."

The showcase will run from 4 to 7 p.m. tomorrow at Metro Gallery. It's also to help support Mental Health Awareness Week.
