The writers contributing their texts to Artists in Absentia wrote and revised their pieces in the Oakhill Prison Humanities Project's Tuesday-evening Creative Writing Workshop. The end results varied in genre, style, and form. Below you can find designs that were printed and mounted for the exhibition, scans of the writers' original manuscripts, and audio recordings of the authors reading their work.
All audio recorded and mixed by Jeremy Morris.
MANY PIECES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE THROUGH A SILENT AUCTION. ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO SHABAZZ HIGH SCHOOL'S ART DEPARTMENT AS REQUESTED BY THE CONTRIBUTING ARTISTS. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
