Playhouse Gallery – Faces of Incarceration: Changing the Narrative
JUL 13 – AUG 27, 2017
These portraits honor and humanize the people impacted by Wisconsin’s flawed criminal justice system. Artists of the Atwood Atelier and project creator Pat Dillon collaborate in these stories and portraits painted from life. Faces of Incarceration aims to contribute to current conversations about race, justice, and inequity.
Join us for a reception with the artists and models SAT, JUL 22, 6 PM – 9 PM. At 8 PM on the Rotunda Stage, join a panel discussion with formerly incarcerated participants and criminal justice reform experts, and listen to poetry from prison. Presenters include: Judge Everett Mitchell (Circuit Court Judge), Jerome Dillard (EXPO), Caliph Muab’el (Focused Interruption Coalition), James Morgan (MOSES), Carmella Glenn (Just Bakery), Melissa Ludin (EXPO) and Rudy Bankston (MMSD/Edgewood College) and Adrian Molitor (poet).
