About Prison Art Experience

At Prison Art Experience, we believe that art has the power to transform lives and shift perspectives. Our mission is to provide a platform for incarcerated and former incarcerated artists to showcase their work and earn equitable income. As an organization, we are committed to representing our artists with the utmost respect and transparency, honoring their art and their lived experiences.

As someone who has personally experienced the prison system, I understand the immense struggles and barriers that incarcerated individuals face in terms of accessing resources and opportunities. My time in prison allowed me to rediscover my love for the arts, and I saw firsthand how it provided a powerful outlet for expression and healing. This realization inspired me to create the Prison Art Experience, an organization dedicated to providing a platform for artists with lived experience.

Through artistic expressions, we aim to help shift societal perspectives and create a more understanding world. Our passion and commitment to this cause drive us to work tirelessly to support these artists and advocate for change within the criminal justice system. We hope that you will join us on this journey, and together, we can create a more equitable and just society.
