Art For Justice Film Series
You may have noticed that many of our summer events this year center around the theme Art for Justice. This past year, the Poetry Center received a $500,000 grant from the Art for Justice organization, which is aiming to highlight the issues around mass incarceration in the United States. The organization’s origin, a painting sold for $165 million, is fascinating, and the woman who sold it put all of that money toward one purpose: criminal justice reform.
