Library Gallery Exhibit — May 1 - May 25, 2006
Art From Within

The work displayed in the Library Gallery represents the work of approximately 60 artist inmates from many securities at the Adult Correctional Institution (ACI). The mediums are varied, from charcoal and pastels to watercolors and acrylics. One section of this exhibit is composed of self portraits in collage with personal descriptions by the artists. Some poetry is also included to accompany certain pieces. Some of the work is for sale with proceeds going to the Childrens Make-a-Wish fund and the Victim Restitution Fund.
