Prison Art Show
Art Behind Bars and Prison Art
- Sunday, November 6
- 4:00 PM

Art Behind Bars/Art Release is a project that was started in 2004 in Los Angeles to
exhibit work by artists in California's Supermax prisons. The project highlights the
brutality and ineffectiveness of the penal system and reminds us of the humanity and
worth of the men and women held in prisons. Tonight's art show will feature dozens
of works drawn by prisoners. Margie Ghiz of Art Behind Bars will speak about her
project, focusing especially on the role of Security Housing Units in California. Ed
Mead, the editor of Prison Art Newsletter and president of California Prison Focus,
will speak about incarceration and alternatives to the current criminal justice
system. This event is endorsed by California Prison Focus, Freedom Archives and
Prison Art Newsletter.
