2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Mary DeWitt and Paulette Carrington will collaborate with the congregation at the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral in September 2018 to lead tours of Mary’s portraits of life-sentenced women. Paulette, who is the second woman released in Pennsylvania sentenced to life without parole as a juvenile, has known and lived with these women for decades. Paulette, whose portrait is also on view, will talk about the effects of growing up in prison and her relationships with these women while leading tours of Mary’s paintings. Reparation for Incarceration will provide an opportunity for the visiting public to deepen their awareness of the serious crisis facing not just these women portrayed, but the larger community and nation.
