These portraits honor and humanize the people impacted by Wisconsin's flawed criminal justice system. Artists of the Atwood Atelier and project organizer Pat Dillon collaborate in these stories and portraits painted from life. Faces of Incarceration aims to contribute to current conversations about race, justice, and inequity.
Join us for an opening reception with artists and models including refreshments and cash bar.

Presenters include: Rudy Bankston (MMSD/Edgewood College), Jerome Dillard (EXPO), Caliph Muab'el (Focused Interruption Coalition), James Morgan (MOSES), Carmella Glenn (Just Bakery), Melissa Ludin (EXPO) and Everett Mitchell (Circuit Court Judge) and Adrian Molitor (poet).
