“Unchained Artists” exhibition opens in Marin County


“Unchained Artists,” an exhibition featuring some 50 pieces of artwork, poetry, and handcrafted art objects made by men and women incarcerated in the United States, including prisoners on San Quentin’s death row, will open this Monday, January 15, in Marin County, California.

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.

Many of the pieces will be available for purchase.

The art will be on display in the lobby of the Bank of Marin from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., M-F, at 19 Sunnyside Avenue in Mill Valley, through March 9.
