More than 2 million individuals are behind bars in U.S. prisons, living in isolation from their families and their communities. Prison/Culture, a new book published by the City Lights Foundation, investigates the culture of incarceration as an integral part of the American experience through a compilation of stunning and often heartrending art by inmates, as well as artists on the outside. This book release party and poetry reading features the book's editors--Kevin Chen, Rebeka Rodriguez and SF State's Sharon E. Bliss, Steven Dickison and Mark Dean Johnson--plus contributors Jack Hirschman, Ericka Huggins and Rigo 23. Presented by the Fine Arts Gallery, Poetry Center, Intersection for the Arts and City Lights Books.
