The event documented here is a panel discussion by returned artists and their family members, about how incarceration impacted their lives. There were also comments from the returned artists about how art and writing instruction impacted their incarceration. The panel was held in Alcatraz prison, where an exhibit of work by currently and formerly incarcerated artists and writers is on display until Sept. 8, 2017.
The portraits are of returned artists, with their loved ones and family members.
