Over 2 million people are incarcerated in the United States today, yet the prison system remains largely invisible to the majority of Americans. This exhibition from the Florida Prison Education Project presents a selection of work from artists whose practice is informed by their experiences with the criminal justice system to shine a light on the ways in which mass incarceration affects us all. The culmination of a two-year project sponsored by the Florida Prison Education Project and the National Endowment for the Arts, the collected pieces explore racism, oppression, and the immutability of the human spirit.
