Project INMATES’ PICTURES – Artworks by American prisoners
Lifespark and Inmates’ Voices are pleased to present a new project which will provide another opportunity for American prisoners to be heard outside their walls: we want to create an exhibition that will display artwork of your pen-friends:
Drawings, paintings, objects made in the cells, decorated envelopes, texts illustrated by drawings, for example a poem with a drawing, drawings of the inside of the cell, collection of texts, literary works (a copy of a book or manuscript)...
We are currently collecting the exhibits; after the exhibition, the artwork will be returned.
Find all detailed information here.
