In the so-called “land of the free”, the United States of America, approximately 1 in 100 adults are currently behind bars — with emotional, psychological, intellectual, and physical effects on the individuals incarcerated. What role can the arts play in liberating the human spirit from the confinement of the body?

Prof. Buzz Alexander, Jon Deak, Janie Paul, and Josh White, Jr. will have a conversation about the work they do in the arts with prisoners, and others.

Here is a description/review of a previous arts event (from last Winter) at UM that also had to do with art and incarceration.

Below are some data showing the current state of the prison-industrial complex in the USA.
