We are pleased to announce the exhibition Beyond the Blue and the third in an accompanying panel series, Art and Restorative Justice, at College of the Desert’s Marks Art Center from September 11 through October 26, 2017. An opening reception will be held on Thursday September 21 from 5:00-7:00 p.m., with closing events on Thursday October 26, 2017 featuring a panel discussion at 3:00 and a reception from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.

This will be the second major exhibition organized by the CSUSB Community-based Art program’s Prison Arts Collective proceeding the program’s well-received 2016 exhibition and accompanying publication, Through the Wall: Prison Arts Collective. Demonstrating the diversity of artistic styles and depth of creative expression among artists that are incarcerated, this exhibition will provide the unique opportunity for viewers to engage with works created by those participating in university-led arts programming while incarcerated.
