Prison Reimagined Opens Tomorrow

The bold, visionary exhibit Prison Reimagined: Presidential Portraits Project will open to the public tomorrow. The art has been created by artists living within the US carceral system and will be displayed throughout the Cottage until February 19.

The exhibit, a partnership with Justice Arts Coalition and made possible by the generosity of the Justice Arts Fund, will feature presidential portraits paired with that president’s record on incarceration, personal essays, and creative visions of what true justice could look like.
