When: Monday - Friday: 10 am-6 pm
From Monday January 15th to Thursday March 15th 2018, P.A.T.H. and ArtReach are collaborating for the first time in a joint international exhibit to take place in the lobby of the Mill Valley branch of the Bank of Marin during their regular business hours (10 am-6 pm; Monday – Friday). This unique and thought provoking public show will feature over 50 pieces of artwork, poetry and various handcrafted art objects - all created by inmates in prisons from around the USA (P.A.T.H.), and prisoners incarcerated on death row at San Quentin State Prison (ArtReach). Art on display will also be available for purchase.
ArtReach was founded in 2015 by UK artist, Nicola White to provide a platform for prisoners on San Quentin’s death row to exhibit their art and creativity. This is achieved both online and in a variety of London based exhibit venues and complementary art discussions. ArtReach seeks to humanize the plight of prisoners sentenced to death through their art. ArtReach believes that art and poetry have the power and ability to transform thinking, consciousness, behavior and lives. In doing so, they also feel art helps to connect and engage these same artists with the outside world.
Says one San Quentin death row artist, “Art created in prison is an expression of hope, provides a focus and purpose, and helps those who have often not had the chance to express themselves, to do so in an acceptable way from behind prison walls”.
