Mental illness. Incarceration. Art. Three aspects of one man’s life, sensitively reconstructed from personal interviews. The true story of how artistic creation—poetry, collage, tattoos—became his self-expression, helping him hold onto who he is and who he wants to be. A young woman’s raw, humorous, and unexpectedly touching exploration of what it means to be free. Show image by Lala Thaddeus. Recommended for: theatre community, mental illness/health advocates, social justice/prison reform activists, poetry community, mixed media/collage community, family and friends of recovery, art therapy community. Links: artist, facebook, instagram.
