Shared Humanity: Traveling Art Exhibit & Sale

Andy Wynkoop, Untitled

August 11 - September 1, 2023

Greater Flint Arts Council at 816 Saginaw St, Flint, MI 48502

Beginning Friday, August 11th, the exhibit Shared Humanity will be featured at the Greater Flint Arts Council from the Prison Creative Arts Project’s (PCAP) private collection. The artwork is for sale and will be on display through September 1, 2023.

According to Sarah Unrath, Curator and PCAP's Community Engagement Specialist, “the exhibition is designed to connect viewer to artist through the wide gamut of their human experiences. We all have dreams, memories, goals, pasts. We all process emotions of anger, joy, grief, nostalgia. We have specially selected works that show a culmination of ways artists in prison have navigated the complex realities of being human.”

The curatorial staff at PCAP worked closely with artists who were formerly incarcerated to select works that would fit the theme of this exhibition and be of interest to the broader audience. Visitors will see works from familiar artists, including Andy Wynkoop, An ArtsyGuy, RIK, Roger (Free-Hand) Stephenson, and many others.

Admission is free and open to the public.

Film Documentary Screening
Thursday, Aug 31, 2023 @ 7:00pm

Join us for a screening of Master of Light and discussion with artists and staff from the Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP).

Master of Light is a beautiful documentary about George Anthony Morton, an artist who studied classical painting while incarcerated and returned to his hometown to reconnect with his family, painting their portraits to bond and heal. It’s a powerful, raw, and hopeful film you don't want to miss!

The screening will be followed by a discussion about the transformative power of arts in prisons with artist Flint Kougar, Program Coordinator - Mary Heinen, and Arts Programming Coordinator - Emily Chase.

(New opportunities to see this unique exhibit are coming soon in multiple locations across the state. Contact to get on our schedule)
