Art on the Inside
The Alabama Prison Arts & Education Project will show a selection of student artwork at The Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts in Florence, AL from April 3 through May 3 as part of the exhibition called Art on the Inside.
APAEP, housed in University College at Auburn University, offers arts and education programming in 10 of the state’s prisons, as well as an interdisciplinary studies degree-granting program. APAEP also works with 12 prisons to build general reading libraries.
“APAEP provides access to sustained and quality educational experiences in the arts, humanities, hard sciences, and human sciences. We believe that education provides a fertile field for transformation and growth and that these learning experiences contribute to the positive development of every person.”
Art on the Inside has shown at the Alabama State Council on the Arts in Montgomery, AL, the Gulf ArtSpace Gallery in Fairhope, AL, the Joan Collins Smith Museum of Art in Auburn, AL, Space OneEleven in Birmingham, AL, Salt Space NYC and New York State University in New York, and St. Louis University in Missouri, among other places.
APAEP art classes have been funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the Joan Mitchell foundation.
