“Beyond the Blue: Prison Arts Collective (PAC)” is an exhibition of artworks created by incarcerated participants in the Prison Arts Collective program in six California state prisons. Demonstrating the diversity of artistic styles and depth of creative expression among artists that are incarcerated, this exhibition will provide the unique opportunity for viewers to engage with works created by those participating in university-led arts programming while incarcerated.

 

This multidisciplinary exhibition showcases dozens of paintings, drawings, and handmade objects created by participants in the California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) Community-based Art (CBA) Prison Arts Collective project in response to five distinct, unifying themes including:

 

  • Alternative Materiality

  • Collaboration and Partnerships

  • Line as Language

  • Dreams, Imagination, and the Surreal

  • The Experience of Incarceration

You can view images from the exhibition sites, here. The exhibition has an accompanying panel as part of the Art and Restorative Justice panel series, please find the dates and locations of panels here
