Share:

On Monday, January 15, an art exhibit featuring the work of prisoners around the country, including those on San Quentin’s death row, will open in the Bank of Marin lobby in Mill Valley, California.

“Unchained Artists” features some 50 pieces of artwork, poetry, and handcrafted art objects. Many of the pieces will be available for purchase.

The exhibit is a first-time collaboration between ArtReach, which was founded by UK artist Nicola White to provide a platform for prisoners on San Quentin’s death row to exhibit their work, and P.A.T.H.: Prison Arts Touching Hearts, founded by Leslie Lakes, a Marin County artist, to give incarcerated men and women a vehicle to give back to the community in a meaningful way.

The exhibition will run through Thursday, March 9.
