Over two million individuals are behind bars in US prisons, living in isolation from their families and their communities. Prison/Culture investigates the culture of incarceration as an integral part of the American experience through a compilation of stunning and often heartrending artwork by inmates as well as by artists on the outside, such as Sandow Birk and Keith Antar Mason, who address incarceration, criminal profiling, wrongful conviction, prison labor, and the death penalty. The book also includes essays on prisons and prison art by Angela Y. Davis and Mike Davis, and poetry by Amiri Baraka, Ericka Huggins, Luis Rodriguez, Sesshu Foster, and more.

Nearing the completion of the yearlong interdisciplinary Prison Project, Intersection for the Arts opens its gallery to an ambitious array of prison-themed art. Including work from prisoners and civilians alike, this multimedia exhibition explores the societal impact of the California corrections system.-SF Bay Guardian 'The Prison Project' contextualizes the work within the gallery so the viewer cannot help but think of life on the inside, and hopefully, bring it with him or her to the world outside.-ArtSlant
