Despite the harsh life inside prison, art allows some of the inmates to develop skills and ideas that help them learn, grow and ultimately change. The featured work in this exhibition includes paintings, prints, and dioramas. Paintings range from landscapes to renaissance-style portraits in oils, to beautiful detailed renderings of boats and architectural images of the inside of the prison. 3D artworks include a zen garden, an imaginary city, and a San Quentin cell to scale created from posterboard, cardboard and homemade ‘clay.’
