Art from Inside - 50 Years of Creativity Behind Bars

2022 was Prison Book Program's 50th anniversary and for decades, they have been grateful recipients of many pieces of amazing artwork.  Typically incarcerated individuals send these paintings and more to the Prison Book Program as a token of gratitude for a shipment of books they have sent to them.  This will be an exhibit of 18 of the best pieces of framed artwork which will be shown in our Wotiz Gallery, although these pieces are not for sale.  These artists are self-taught and many of their works of art are book-themed.  The Prison Book Program adminstrators just want people to view these lovely pieces and enjoy them.  Please come to the Milton Public Library during the month of February to see this incredible display by some very talented artists.

And for more information about displaying your art at the MPL, please Email jhlady@milton.ocln.org or call the Reference Dept. at (617) 898-4964.  We hope you might come visit us this month for a unique viewing experience!
