gallery: art from the inside
Saturday, April 13 | 6:00 PM
Fowler Museum Terrace | UCLA
On Saturday, April 13, Fowler Museum Terrace will be transformed into an exhibition of currently incarcerated people’s work. We will be displaying and selling artwork created by currently incarcerated artists to benefit Was Incarcerated Productions (whose purpose is to tell real untold stories through art to change the narrative of incarceration and heal the heart). Many of the artists wrote about the healing nature of art, how it allows them to express themselves on the inside, give back to the community, and also how they use it to tell the truth about what is happening inside the prison system. We will be displaying art including found object art, poems, charcoal, acrylic paintings, graphite, ballpoint pen, and colored pencil from over 35 different artists who are currently incarcerated across the United States.
Many of the art pieces are available to take home in exchange for your donation. Donations will be accepted via Venmo and personal check only.
