WANTED - ARTWORK BY PRISONERS - Please broadcast widely to your friends behind bars...
- Wisconsin Books to Prisoners was the recipient of a powerful set of posters created by 20 printmakers from the JUSTSEEDS Visual Resistance art collective. These posters were created in anticipation of the 10th anniversary of Critical Resistance, a prison abolitionist movement, and call attention to the human rights catastrophe in U.S. jails and prisons, and the use of policing, prisons and punishment as a solution to social, political and economic problems.
The posters and artwork by prisoners will be displayed at Project Lodge,817 E Johnson St., Madison, at the end of January 2009. Art that addresses the condition of prisons and the daily drudgery and cruelties of prison life would be particularly appreciated.
