Artwork by recently released prisoners is now on display inside Philadelphia City Hall. The hallways on its second and fourth floors are lined with paintings and sculptures by people who had been in prison – from amateurs wielding felt pens to trained artists with a studio practice.
This June and July, the Philadelphia Reentry Coalition is hosting an exhibit in City Hall and we want to showcase your artwork! The exhibit will feature art created by people who have been incarcerated and experienced reentry firsthand.
All exhibited artwork will be chosen by a group of men and women in reentry from across the city.
