The art show, the largest of its kind in the country, features work from more than 40 prisons throughout Michigan, demonstrating the creativity, talent and vitality of over 200 incarcerated individuals. Tonight’s opening features talks by former prisoners who will speak about what the PCAP program has meant to them. Additionally, PCAP will premiere a documentary soon to be featured on PBS called "Acts of Art: The Prison Creative Arts Project," at the Chesborough Auditorium at 4pm on April 6. If you miss tonight’s festivities, not to worry: the show will be on display through April 9.
