U of M hosts largest prisoner-art exhibition

 

ANN ARBOR: The Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP) presents the Twelfth Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners and a series of eight educational events from March 27th – April 11th, 2007.  The exhibition will be held at the Duderstadt Center Gallery on the University of Michigan North Campus, at 2281 Bonisteel Boulevard.  Over the past decade, this nationally recognized exhibition has grown to be the largest exhibition of prisoner art in the United States. 

This year’s exhibition will include 300 works of art by over 200 artists; shedding light on the talents to be found behind prison walls and encouraging the public to ponder the massive incarceration that characterizes the United States.

Free and open to the public, the exhibition and surrounding educational events raise awareness and inspire dialogue between the incarcerated and the community at large. The public is invited to an opening reception on March 27th from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the gallery.  Formerly incarcerated artists who have reentered the community will speak about what the show means to those in prison.

 

Exhibition hours are 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Tuesday - Saturday, and noon – 6:00 p.m. Sunday - Monday.
