Step into a world where the boundaries of art and poetry dissolve. Welcome to "Voices & Art Unlocked," a groundbreaking art exhibition, and poetic journey born from the collaboration between the Marquette Poets Circle and artists from the Prison Creative Arts Project at the University of Michigan.
This exhibition offers a unique lens into the visual artists' world inside prison, shedding light on resilience and immense creativity that can be found within the most challenging circumstances.
The Marquette Poets Circle, inspired by this remarkable art, has crafted powerful poems that serve as a companion to the visual expressions, providing a bridge between the free world and voices on the other side of the razor wire.
"Voices & Art Unlocked" is a traveling exhibition, accompanying the People of Action Coalition's Traveling Town Halls, enriching communities across the state with the dynamic interplay between art and poetry.
For those unable to attend in person, a virtual gallery was crafted for viewers to explore the rich tapestry of emotions, stories, and reflections woven into each work.
