On Saturday January 28th 2012, join members of the Chicago PIC Teaching Collective and Project NIA as we offer an introductory workshop about “How Prisons Impact Our Communities and Our Lives.”
“Prison: Photographs by Lloyd DeGrane features 75 candid black-and-white shots taken over a lengthy period, from 1990 through 2001, by the Chicago-based photographer whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Reader and other national and international publications. The exhibit is a journey into the incarceration experience – from its beginning at Cook County Jail where the accused await trial, through the Joliet Receiving Center where the newly convicted are processed, and finally into the maximum-security Stateville Prison where inmates serve their time.”
11 am to noon — Bring your lunch and join us for a tour of the life inside prison photo exhibit by Lloyd DeGrane at Gage Gallery, 18 S. Michigan Ave.
12:30 to 4 pm — Then join us as we walk over to Roosevelt University for the Workshop: How Prisons Impact Our Communities and Our Lives. Location: Roosevelt University, 430 S. Michigan Ave. Room 244
This event is co-sponsored with the Mansfield Institute for Social Justice and Transformation.
