Please join us to celebrate the opening of How Art Changed the Prison: The Work of the CPA Prison Arts Program, presenting visual art made in Connecticut’s correctional institutions over the past three decades. Organized by Jeffrey Greene, manager of Community Partners in Action (CPA), a non-profit that focuses on behavioral changes of both current and past inmates, in addition to criminal justice reform, this exhibition will include the work of approximately twenty-eight artists.

At 2 pm, Jeffrey Greene will be moderating a panel discussion with former inmates and others involved in Connecticut’s correctional system on the impact of the visual arts for those incarcerated in the State’s prisons. More information here.
