Open Call for Clemency is a virtual exhibition of visual art by people who are currently incarcerated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the exhibition is to emphasize the humanity of those who are incarcerated, share the works as widely as possible, and ultimately reach the Governors' offices, to advocate for clemency and protect the health and lives of people who are incarcerated and exceptionally vulnerable to the pandemic. The collaboration between the Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP) Campaign, curator Claire Kim and The Confined Arts is being produced by Leia and Pastor Isaac Scott.
The online exhibition will go live on May 27th at 10am. RSVP via the Facebook Event page for updates.
