Forever Young is an exhibition of installation work by local artist John MacCallum. Using images, sculpture, performance, and direct verbal communication, John attempts to explore his personal experiences with bipolar disorder and reflect on the stigma still attached to mental illness in society today.

John MacCallum has a Masters degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Inspired by a life-long fascination with materials and a strong interest in representational art, he reflects through his work on family, nature and social justice. Out of a mix of traditional media, construction material and eclectic, recycled items, he creates meaningful and cutting-edge works of art.
