2009 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Mary will visit seven life-sentenced women at SCI Muncy and SCI Cambridge Springs to paint their portraits and record their voices. The finished work will be exhibited at the Painted Bride Art Center (September-October 2010) and on her website. Through this project, which is a continuation of a body of work she’s been developing for many years, Mary will bring wider visibility to the lives of this hidden population of women, and raise public awareness of life-sentencing laws unique to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the impact on those incarcerated, their families, and the community-at-large. Mary has known most of these women for over a decade, and she is passionate about bringing their stories to the public using real faces and voices, as a way of exploring the long-term consequences of life-sentences without parole that are not often articulated.
