This panel discussion is offered in coordination with the exhibition Life on Hold, which features artwork created by women incarcerated at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women (MCIW). The conversation will be led by Guest Curator Casey McKeel, who led the artistic collaboration with incarcerated women and curated the exhibition, and NDMU student Jaylien Washington, an art therapy major who participated in the art workshops at MCIW.
