January 5- February 19, 2024

This January, President Lincoln’s Cottage will partner with Justice Arts Coalition on an exhibit titled Prison Reimagined: Presidential Portraits Project curated by the Committee of Incarcerated Artists and Writers (CIAW). The art will fill President Lincoln’s Cottage and is being created by artists living within the US carceral system and will feature presidential portraits paired with that president’s record on incarceration, personal essays, and creative visions of what true justice could look like. This project is the creation of journalist Caddell Kivett, one of the editors of Nash News, who is currently incarcerated at the Nash Correctional Institution in North Carolina.

Our daily tours will conclude with an exploration of the art (see below), and between 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm each day, visitors can enjoy self-exploration of the exhibit.
