2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Mary will paint, fire, and install a tile mural portrait of Paulette Carrington in Philadelphia. An accompanying narrative will describe Paulette's case and her sentencing, at the age of 16, to 40 years of life without parole in Pennsylvania. More juvenile lifers are sentenced to life without parole in Philadelphia than any U.S. city. Paulette hopes to use the site of the tile portrait as a place to gather and share her experiences and struggle.
