Original Post: The 26th Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners, a project of the Prison Creative Arts Project at the University of Michigan, showcases the work of incarcerated artists living in Michigan prisons. The work is by men and women from all 26 state prisons in both the upper and the lower peninsulas: 25 men’s prisons and 1 women’s prison. This year there are 714 works in two and three dimensions, including portraits, tattoo imagery, landscapes, fantasy, and wildlife as well as images about incarceration and visions that are entirely new. We invite you to enjoy the work, write to the artists, and if you like, make a purchase. All proceeds, minus necessary taxes and fees, go directly to the artists. More…

Gallery & sales open at 5:00 PM with reception, on Tuesday, March 22.

The program begins at 6:30 PM, featuring guest speakers from the University of Michigan, the Michigan Department of Corrections, and artists from previous exhibitions.

Presented with support from U-M Residential College, Michigan Arts and Culture Council, and Om of Medicine – Ann Arbor.

Special Gallery Hours: Sunday-Monday, Noon-6:00pm, Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00am-7:00pm
