About the Event
About this event: Featuring over 40 works, Degrees of Separation explores the relationship that proximity and spatial relation have with an individual’s ability to understand, experience, and engage. Just as physical distance changes one’s perspective regarding a piece of artwork, so is one’s understanding of the carceral system shaped by their proximity to a person impacted by the system. This reception will include live viewings of the artwork, recordings of artist interviews and artist talks, as well as refreshments.
About the Justice Arts Coaltion: Justice Arts Coalition (JAC) unites teaching artists, arts advocates, artists who are or have been incarcerated and their allies, harnessing the transformative power of the arts to reimagine justice. Through the sharing of resources, stories, and learning opportunities, JAC is building a nationwide collective of people who are committed to increasing opportunities for creative expression in carceral settings, amplifying the voices of those most impacted by mass incarceration, and shaping public dialogue around the intersection of the arts and justice.
This event is sponsored in part by the Baltimore County Arts Guild, the Citizens of Baltimore County and the Maryland State Arts Council
