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
