“Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.” – Bertolt Brecht

RedBird Prison Abolition is making a call to Columbus, OH artists to participate in an art exhibition against the U.S. prison system.

The show will include art by prisoners as well as by people on the outside. Submissions should address the prison system, incarceration or the US police state.


Include a brief artist’s statement, dimensions/space needs, and how you’d like the work to be displayed/priced. There will be a silent auction for all pieces. All media will be considered. Send JPEG image submissions to: redbirdprisonabolition@gmail.com.
