Gallery of Art Created by incarcerated men and women across the United States
The Inmate Mural Program was created by The Florida State Arts in Corrections Project. David Gussak and Leslie Neil organized this group. Inmates created sketches and the grad students working with the project made a composite for the mural. The results were painted on the dorms.
Not all inmates are lucky enough to experience an art program in their Facility. An aspiring artist by the name of David Jones also used art as therapy, but on his own. He loved to sketch pictures of his loved ones and his self esteem was greatly elevated when his family told him how they loved to receive the pictures he drew. A drawing by David for his sister Lisa
