Incarcerated Mothers in the United States
     a traveling public art installation

A dramatic exhibit of painting, drawings, sculpture, sound design and photography that documents the experiences of incarcerated persons in the United States.

Interrupted Life seeks to educate and invites discussion about current realities and decent solutions to a major and growing problem in U.S. society. National curator: Rickie Solinger

Organized by Rickie Solinger, director and curator of WAKEUP/Arts in New York, this exhibition brings together eight installations. Works include the "Real Cost of Prisons" comic book project, the San Francisco Photovoice Project, and CAPACITY, a youth arts program in Columbus, Ohio, and a "sound bag" audio installation created by Darryl Hell. The result is a powerful commentary on imprisonment, the emotional impact incarceration has on families, and stigmas generated by incarceration.

Interrupted Life: Incarcerated Mothers in the United States was made possible by generous support from the Ford Foundation.
