Sat., July 28 – Event
Getting a letter from an inmate or prisoner can be an eye-opener. It’s a cut-to-the-core reminder that incarcerated people deserve to be treated as people. BOOM Concepts in Garfield has a mission to remind people of this, and is choosing to do so through art. At Letters & Liberation: Art Show and Fundraiser for Prison Justice, more than 40 artists will be featured. Former inmates and current inmates will display ceramics, textiles, silk screen, collage, stained glass, drawing and photography. Proceeds of artwork sold will go to organizations dedicated to prison reform and prisoner-support services.
