Inmate-Artist Exhibit at Mural Arts 

I realize this is short notice, but for those of you who didn't get an email announcement, we have an exhibit opening tomorrow night at Mural Arts featuring work created by inmate-artists from our prisons programs. There's some amazing work & two great speakers (one of whom is my dad, so I'm slightly biased -- he runs the State Correctional Institute at Graterford, where Mural Arts has been working for several years). Last & certainly not least, Mayor Michael Nutter will be our special guest & make opening remarks. Stop by after work if you're free!
