How does one create when your only material is paper?

Celeste O’Brien – program coordinator of UArizona’s Prison Education Project – and UAMA’s Curator of Exhibitions Olivia Miller will explore the significance of prison education programs and how the Museum got involved in the Art on the Yard project at Tucson’s prison complex.

Miller will also discuss how the exhibition Hobby Craft was created, and recently incarcerated artist Scott Gleason will share what it means to be incarcerated and creating art.

This event is part of the Spring 2020 Museum Lecture Series.
