The Elms College Center for Law and Justice presents Cellblock Visions: Set Free in the Penitentiary, A Surprising Collection of Artwork Created Behind Bars - A Talk by Phyllis Kornfeld

Phyllis KornfeldArtist, author and educator Phyllis Kornfeld has worked closely with incarcerated men and women for 33 years in all levels of security - from county jail to maximum security to death row - providing the transformative experience of creating sincere and beautiful art. She is the author of Cellblock Visions: Prison Art in America (Princeton University Press).

The art, quotes from the artists, and Kornfeld's experiences behind bars with the men and women who live there deliver irrefutable evidence that people in prison have the same human potential for goodness and care as the rest of us.

This event is free and open to the public.
