Event Description

The exhibition’s theme is the transformative power of creating art, and its ability to reclaim and re-grow personal identity in the face of negative trauma of incarceration – exhibit is drawn from pieces created both inside prison and on the outside by artists including Victor Bono as well as the youth documentary Passing the Baton project.

Exhibited artists are Victor Bono, James “Doc” Holiday, Amanda Perez, KUSH, Katrina Amaya, Leonard Dixon, Jack L. Morris, David Earl Williams, Dianne Fellman, Youth Justice Coalition, murals by AISE,  Passing the Baton— a multi-generational Oral History Documentary project initiated by John Martinez which gives cameras and microphones to youth to document and discuss elders’ experiences, and many more. Live music, community information tables from exhibition partners and related service organizations, arts workshops and other family-friendly activities will take place to launch the exhibition.

Curated in collaboration with ADELANTE, Art Release, AK Angels, Youth Justice Coalition, Sheila Pinkel, and the Old Timers.

The exhibition is put on in partnership with the generous donations of local neighborhood councils, United Neighborhoods Neighborhood Council (UNNC) and Mid City Neighborhood Council (MINC).
