Artists as Teachers in Prisons -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog





Purvis Young painted in prison. He once said that there were only two choices when he was in prison; lifting weights or painting.

Think of how many Purvis' there are in our prison system today. Programs like this one can help to find them. GL
