Curators Highlight Series

During our countdown to the digital 25th Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners, let's take some time to celebrate our team of curators, who has been crisscrossing the state to assemble one of the largest prison exhibitions in the world.

One year into lockdown, PCAP celebrates virtually the 25 anniversary of the Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners

The pandemic halted the 25th Annual Exhibition days before it was scheduled to open in March 2020. Now, PCAP brings the 2020 show in a brand new digital gallery to commemorate its major milestone. The exhibit goes live March 16, 2021.


The Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP) brings those impacted by the justice system and the University of Michigan community into artistic collaboration for mutual learning and growth. We are a program of the LSA Residential College. Founded in 1990 with a single theatre workshop, PCAP has grown to include courses, exhibits, publications, arts programming, and events that reach thousands of people each year.
