Get Out of Jail Free is an exhibition featuring 100s of works of art by local and international artists. Powerful themes of imprisonment as a metaphor for illness and other issues of struggle and injustice in political, social, environmental and personal arenas will be explored through mixed media and text-based works.

"The theme was inspired by seeing the 'Get Out of Jail Free' card crop up repeatedly in diverse works of art," said Julie Blankenship. "In the Monopoly game we played as kids, a lucky roll of the dice assigned this card, which functioned as a pass, used to extricate the player from dire circumstances. The title references how--in our darkest hour--we might envision a threshold we can step through to a parallel universe without illness or homophobia, racist wars or environmental degradation."

Visual Aid is a nonprofit art organization whose mission is to help artists with life-threatening illnesses continue their creative work.
