About the exhibition:
Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of Louisiana presents the stories of thirty formerly incarcerated women as interpreted through brand new artworks and, in doing so, brings light to the myriad issues facing this community as well as the incredible resilience and strength of survivors. The exhibition showcases stories of loss, hope, despair, survival, triumph, and persistence and invites everyone to stand witness to this moment in time and find ways to empathetically, and collectively, move forward.
