2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Mary will paint portraits and record the oral histories of Teri Smallwood and Rose Dinkins, women who have each served over 40 years of a life sentence at the State Correctional Institution at Muncy. Documenting Rose and Teri’s longstanding friendship will provide insight into issues surrounding life in prison, the specific effects on women who are incarcerated, and the injustices that send people to prison to begin with. With the recent legal assistance from the Innocence Project, Teri got out on bail and is awaiting trial, and Rose is in prison without the companionship of her best friend. Mary believes this project will support both women on a personal level and contribute toward the struggle to end mass incarceration.
