Arts in Prison: Poetry Reading & Exhibition Reception

April 15, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Why Arts in Prison? Arts in Prison provides opportunities for inmates to prove that they are more than the sum of their crimes.

Join us for a Poetry Reading & Reception for our Spring Exhibition by Arts in Prison (AIP). The reading features four current and four former inmates from correctional facilities in both Kansas and Missouri. Penning their thoughts on important cultural topics and current events as well as exploring their pasts through stories and poems is a cathartic experience to inmates who have spent most of their lives behind prison walls. Witness the power of spoken word and support these courageous individuals as they share their stories.

Poetry Reading: 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Our Spring exhibition showcases art from the AIP Visual Art Program which facilitates the teaching of art techniques and way to communicate with the outside world. The audience is encourage to share their thoughts on the work via notecards.
