Voices of Incarceration
The Laband Art Gallery at Loyola Marymount University will be hosting “Voices of Incarceration”, an exhibition that will be on display from January 25 to March 16.
This exhibition brings together works by incarcerated artists who convey their unique perspectives from inside the prison walls and works by artists who confront the American criminal justice system from outside its walls. Both groups bring to light the emotional costs and injustices of the prison-industrial complex. Among the artists exhibited is LMU student Frank Carillo, who created artwork while serving 20 years in prison, including 10 at Folsom Prison, before being exonerated and freed. Voices of Incarceration also explores the rehabilitative arts program in California prisons and the expression of the imprisoned artists’ strength and individuality through the creative process.
The gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.; closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Admission is free. The gallery is in the Fritz B. Burns Fine Arts Center on campus. Parking is free on weekends.
