Emery Lobby Space

Opening Reception: Oct. 5th, 5-7pm with remarks from curators Jan Collins and Nicole Lund at 5:30

Inside Vision: An Outside Exhibition of Inside Art, curated by Jan Collins and Nicole Lund (UMF ’24), runs from Thursday, Oct. 5 to Thursday, Nov. 16, 2023. It is on display throughout the lobby spaces in Emery. An opening reception will be held on Oct. 5 from 5:00 – 7 p.m., with remarks by the curators at 5:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

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, and is supported by the American Rescue Plan Maine Project Grant provided by SPACE Gallery.
