muraLAB: Art in Action | Morality of the Moment

  • location ZOOM
  • cost



muraLAB is connecting with Mural Arts artists, staff and collaborators to examine how socially-engaged art can help us develop better strategies for dealing with challenges posed and amplified by the COVID-19 crisis.

Artists and partners of Mural Arts Philadelphia’s Reimagining Reentry fellowship program will examine the problems posed by mass incarceration on both a personal and a systemic level, illuminating the human cost and potential solutions. With the COVID-19 crisis, those problems are more urgent than ever, as large numbers of people are released from incarceration into communities struggling with the crisis, and people remaining in incarceration face deadly health risks. 

Join us on Zoom for a conversation about the artistic response to these challenges featuring:

Mary Baxter, Mural Arts Reimaging Re-entry Fellow

James Hough, Philadelphia DA Artist in Residence

Jasmine Heiss, Vera Institute of Justice

Nicole Fleetwood, Rutgers University

Greg Corbin, Mural Arts Philadelphia
