5:30 - 7:30 pm
The Defenders Association of Philadelphia
1441 Sansom Street
Featuring recent work by inmate-artists at the State Correctional Institution at Graterford and incarcerated youth from the House of Correction, who participate in the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program's (MAP) art education programs.
In working with adjudicated and incarcerated adults and youth, MAP uses mural creation for two powerful purposes: the reparation and prevention of crime. Its work with men at the State Correctional Institute at Graterford brings together prisoners, victims, victim advocates, and community members to create healing, meaningful dialogue. At House of Correction, MAP's mission is to provide incarcerated youth with an opportunity to grow through developing art skills and contributing to their community in a positive way.
