States of Incarceration Art Incubator
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
States of Incarceration is the first national traveling exhibition on the history and future of mass incarceration in the United States at The International Civil Rights Center & Museum and UNCG’s Greensboro Project Space. Developed by the UNCG History/Museum Studies Program and universities across the country, the exhibit explores the roots of mass incarceration and opens a national dialogue on what should happen next.
EXPERIMENTS IN SOCIAL PRACTICE PROJECT
Students of Lee Walton’s course “Experiments in Social Practice” at UNC-Greensboro introduced the artists who are Skyping into GPS for the 'States of Incarceration Art Incubator' through a multimedia installation. To further entice public dialogue and bring together students and the local community, free Honey Buns were available throughout the duration of this exhibition. Honey Buns are currently used as currency in US prisons and jails.
