The 26th Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners, a project of the Prison Creative Arts Project at the University of Michigan, showcased the work of incarcerated artists living in Michigan prisons in 2022. The work was done by men and women from all 26 state prisons in both the upper and the lower peninsulas: 25 men’s prisons and 1 women’s prison. There are 714 works in two and three dimensions, including portraits, tattoo imagery, landscapes, fantasy, and wildlife as well as images about incarceration and visions that are entirely new. We invite you to enjoy the work online. All proceeds, minus necessary taxes and fees, went directly to the artists.

Presented with support from U-M Residential College, Michigan Arts and Culture Council, and Om of Medicine - Ann Arbor
