Every year, along with student and community volunteers, Janie Paul and Buzz Alexander travel to 42 prisons throughout the state of Michigan. Here they meet with prisoners & hand-select work for the Annual Exhibit of Prison Art at the University of Michigan, now the largest exhibit of prison art in the country. This half-hour documentary profiles these two activist/artists who believe in the power of the creative arts as a tool for social change.
Part of a collaborative project with University of Michigan’s School of Art & Design and Michigan Public Media.
Writing, production and music design by Katherine Weider.
