What do Americans really know about the criminal justice system apart from what we see on Orange Is the New Black or re-runs of Law & Order?
In conjunction with HBO’s release of its newest prison drama, “O.G.,” formerly incarcerated artists put their works on display at Studio 525 in Manhattan’s Chelsea district through an exhibition titled ‘The O.G. Experience’ in order to call attention to their otherwise ignored stories.
Inmates find an escape through art as their works are displayed at Governor’s Island.
Take a look at the artwork of America’s inmates in an alternative art exhibition titled Escaping Time: Art from U.S. Prisons on view at Governors Island August 1 through September 27.
