Painting His Way Home: Exhibition of Art by Martin Vargas
A self-taught artist who spent 45 years in prison for a crime committed when he was 17 years old, Martin Vargas has participated in the Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners since its inception in 1996. He has created hundreds of pieces of art, one of which was gifted to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor during her visit to University of Michigan in 2017.
Earlier this year, Martin came home after more 45 years of incarceration. His solo exhibition runs through December 2018.
