Eighth National Art Exhibition by the Mentally Ill: The University of Miami's New Gallery (1300 Campo Sano Dr., AR 101, Coral Gables) hosts the Eighth National Art Exhibition by the Mentally Ill. The works chosen for the exhibition cover a wide spectrum of media and styles, and were compiled by a Florida-based volunteer organization whose goal is to fight the stigma associated with mental illness while providing a forum for talented artists who might otherwise experience discrimination. The exhibition is on view through August 30. Admission is free. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from Monday through Friday, and 10:00 to 3:00 on Saturday. Call 284-2542. (GC)
