Arts-In-Corrections Art Show at Columbia College Through March 28, 2019

Jamestown, CA...Artworks by California inmates at Sierra Conservation Center (SCC) will be on display at Columbia College in Sonora through March 28, 2019. The show, “Artistic Realms,” features 100 acrylic paintings on display and for sale in the college’s Manzanita Building. The artworks were created by students in the William James Association’s Prison Arts Project class taught at SCC. The course is made possible by a contract through California Arts in Corrections, a partnership between the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the California Arts Council. Arts in Corrections programs are evidence-based courses that reduce recidivism through structured instruction of visual, performing and literary arts.





The free exhibit is available for public viewing from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Columbia College is located at 11600 Columbia College Drive.

Bids on artworks will be taken via silent auction through 4 p.m. on March 27. Proceeds from the sales of the artwork will go to two non-profit organizations — Columbia College Foundation Art Scholarship and Columbia College Student Food Bank.

Paintings include landscapes, birds, animals, underwater fish, planets and abstract works. Many of the wooden picture frames that adorn the paintings were made by the vocational carpentry program at SCC, supervised by instructor Randy Bland.

Stacy Hay, a retired correctional officer and local artist, leads the arts course. Hay said the classes are a valuable rehabilitative program.

“The process of creativity opens the mind and the human spirit. It teaches self-discipline and problem solving,” Hay said. “These arts programs are proven to decrease institutional tensions, and lower recidivism rates. Most of these students are getting out of prison and could be your neighbors. This art exhibition gives them a way to give back to our local community.”


This event repeats weekly every Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday until 03/28/2019

I think that this is really great to have exposure for talented people in the prison system and also gives them hope. Not only that but also to benefit the community, i.e., the food banks etc. I know if I was in these inmate's shoes, I would appreciate that. After all the R in CDCR is all about rehabilitation-to give these guys a second chance in life and they can become productive members of society and as the article states to cut the recividist rate way down.

      So what's your trip? Do you know what the R means in CDCR means-a chance for inmates to turn their lives around. All inmates are required by the system to obtain a GED if they didn't graduate from H.S. before. Plus there are additional vocational education course similar to vocational schools on the streets with certificate programs. I have even heard of long termers who got BA degrees from cooperating colleges and are now successful since they got out. So you need to OPEN YOUR EYES! Not every inmate is bad. They deserve a 2nd chance and they can straighten out their lives-if they want to.

        WHAT?!?!?!?
        If every inmate is not bad, why are they incarcerated?
        .
        Now you liberals demand a 2nd chance and "they can straighten out their lives-IF THEY WANT TO"?!?!?

        So reform is now optional for being unleashed among the public?

        Desperate Democrats

    Democrats/"progressives"/liberals/leftists/socialists will do ANYTHING to get political power! The hypocritical and corrupt Democrats/"progressives"/liberals/leftists/socialists are going further and further left, and becoming more radicalized, aggressive, and hateful. They are for open-borders, sanctuary cities/states, big government, more regulations, identity politics, politically correctness, "free stuff" (health care, college education, guaranteed income, other entitlements), redistribution of wealth, a weak military, social engineering, are anti-gun ownership, for rewriting-history, censor what they don’t like, and are turning socialist and more violent. And, they’re guilty of voter fraud! We MUST take the House back in ’20, gain more control of the Senate, and reelect President Trump in ’20!!! VOTE STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN TICKET in ’20! VOTE, DAMN IT!
