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.
