Inside Vision: An Outside Exhibition of Inside Art
November 3 – December 10, 2022
Opening reception: Thursday, November 3rd, 4:30-7:00pm
Free and open to the public
Inside Vision: An Outside Exhibition of Inside Art, curated by Jan Collins, Olivia Hochstadt and Sophie Craven, features art by individuals incarcerated at Maine State Prison and Maine correctional facilities. Residents of Maine’s prisons express their lived experience, their hopes, and their dreams in the art they create. Their artwork defies stereotypes and emphasizes that we are all more than the worst act that we have committed. Through their art, those living inside convey the message that, “We are whole people with loves and losses, skills, talents, ideas, and gifts . . . and a longing to be free.”
Inside Vision is a joint effort between the Maine Prisoner Advocacy Coalition and the Maine Department of Corrections. We are supported by the American Rescue Plan Maine Project Grant provided by SPACE Gallery.
The exhibition will be on view in the lobby spaces of Emery Community Arts Center from November 3 – December 10, 2022. Emery is open to the public Mon.-Fri., 11am-6pm; Sat. 12pm-6pm. Closed Sundays, holidays and university breaks.
