Many of us have the liberty to express ourselves through speech, movement, or even art. What happens when you are in prison? There are currently over two million incarcerated individuals in the United States.* Despite their limited freedom and access to creative materials, some of these individuals find a way to resist their confinement through artistic expression. 

UCSB Library invites the campus and community to the opening event for the new exhibition Beyond The Wall: The Prison Art Resistance on Wednesday, January 19th, 2022 at 4:00pm.

The event will include a panel discussion with curators and current UCSB students Ryan “Flaco” Rising, Juan Bran-Gudiel and Gilbert Murillo. Moderated by Prof. Vickie Vértiz of the UCSB Writing Program.

The panel will be followed by an opportunity to view the exhibition.
