“Perceptions” offers an intimate exploration of the re-entry experiences and emotions of formerly incarcerated individuals. Through interactive visual art, the exhibit aims to destigmatize conversations surrounding re-entry while shedding light on the personal development of those navigating life beyond bars.

The art – like the exhibition itself – is a collaborative effort by photographer Jake Gold and illustrator and graphic artist William Minion. “Perceptions” humanizes the journeys of five previously incarcerated people who focus on themes of identity, grief, overcoming and adaptation to a new normal.

Show up for our first, newly launched “Fourth Friday” of the Fonseca-Du Bois Gallery powered by Arte Mexicano en Indiana, located at the Indianapolis Liberation Center. We are thrilled to be working with and hosting GANGGANG and the Marion Country Reentry Coalition for this interactive art exhibition, “Perceptions,” a body of work that centers the experiences and emotions of five formally incarcerated Hoosiers.

The theme organizing the Fonseca-Du Bois Gallery’s monthly art opening and exhibit, which we are now doing on the fourth Friday of each month, is “Unleashing the Creativity of the Masses.” The theme is inspired by and a practice in what Stephen Jay Gould expressed when he wrote in The Panda’s Thumb that “I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.” Learn more about the exhibit and our gallery here.
