A live wearable art show has been transformed into a documentary to raise money for mental health after it was shelved due to COVID-19.

Somniatis 'A World of Beauty' takes the viewer on a journey showcasing the collaboration of local artists working together on one wearable piece of art.

"For me personally, before the pandemic, there were many people in my life that I lost due to mental health," said Somniatis Artist Director Tammy Dore. "But with myself personally creating art, it just kind of takes you away."

The roughly 23-minute long video is meant to raise money for mental health services at Orillia's hospital.

As of Monday afternoon, more than $600 has been raised.
