"Shining a light into a dark place – art as therapy.

A light that isn't intended to illuminate the dark corridors of a violent art-program-less prison, as much as it is intended to illuminate minds, hearts, and souls while simultaneously empowering people to have hope, build confidence, and create opportunities to collaborate with communities outside of prison." 

Willie Kearse

ABCA's Art Program Associate
