2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Mary will create portraits of two African American women who are currently serving life without parole in Pennsylvania. The portraits will be accompanied by videos in which the viewer will witness the painting process and hear the voices of the women sharing information about their lives and experiences in prison. In the summer of 2016, the portraits and videos will be displayed at the Painted Bride Art Center with the goal of illustrating the toll incarceration has taken on these women and their loved ones. These portraits will both humanize these women and bring visibility to the systematic injustice of mass incarceration.
