Visions of Confinement: A Lens on Women in the United States Prison System

After an inspiring opening reception and an informative and educational 3-Day Justice Forum at Visions of Confinement, the rest of the summer will continue to function as an educational laboratory and flex space inside the gallery, and is aimed at fostering conversations around female incarceration. In its two week of being open this exhibition has included the voices, experiences, and the expertise of currently and formerly incarcerated artist, poets, speakers, and advocates. Discussions have included topics such as aging in prison, experiences of reentry, legislative intervention, mental health, art and its role in mass incarceration, and clemency.
