Project NIA believes strongly in the value and importance of creative resistance. We use art (in its various forms) to communicate with a broad array of individuals about the injustice of the prison industrial complex.
To that end, we invited artists (youth and adults) to contribute prints and posters relating to policing, violence, and resistance. We are thrilled to be able to exhibit art created by Sarah Atlas, students from Bowen High School, Billy Dee, Eric Garcia, Leigh Klonsky, LuchArte, Eva Nagao, Mauricio Pineda, Ariel Springfield and Stephanie Weiner.
The exhibition was designed by Billy Dee. It ran from March 19th until March 28th at the Pop-up Just Arts Space located at 729 S. Maxwell St. in Chicago, Illinois.
Thanks to our friend and volunteer Eva Nagao, those who weren’t able to visit the exhibit or who simply want to revisit it can do so through this ONLINE EXHIBITION.
