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.
Tuesday, March 22, 2022 – Tuesday, April 5, 2022
