Free. Reception to follow.
Artist Mark Strandquist’s ongoing, nationwide project, Windows From Prison, begins with prisoners responding to the prompt, “If you could have a window in your cell, what place from your past would it look out to?” High school and college students fulfill each photo request, and the images are presented to the prisoners.
Mark Strandquist is an artist, educator, and cultural organizer who utilizes interactive public installations to create understanding of systemic human rights issues. He will be working with the Village of Arts and Humanities and Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity to engage with criminal justice issues in North Philadelphia this fall.
This event is part of Eastern State's ongoing Searchlight Series of events addressing issues in contemporary corrections.
