The 27th Annual Exhibition of Artists in Michigan Prisons showcases the hard work and talents of artists incarcerated in Michigan prisons.

The work is by men and women from all 25 state prisons in both the upper and the lower peninsulas: 24 men’s prisons and 1 women’s prison.

This year there are 645 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 and, if you like, make a purchase. All proceeds, minus necessary taxes and fees, go directly to the artists.

After March 21st, gallery hours for the exhibit are:
Sunday–Monday: 12:00 PM–6:00 PM
Tuesday–Saturday: 10:00 AM–7:00 PM

Presented with support from U-M Residential College and the Michigan Arts and Culture Council
