Cellblock Visions:
Prison Art in America
Phyllis Kornfeld
With a foreword by Roger Cardinal

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Art is what human beings do--Stone Age cave dwellers in Altamira and twentieth century prison dwellers in the United States of America. Stripped of freedom, beautiful surroundings, and supportive community, these convicts draw pictures of what their souls see. They sketch their way past despair. They give us insight into what it means to be a Thrown-Away-One. Their pictures cry out: 'I, too, can see. I, too, can create. I, too, am a human being.'"--Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, author of Dead Man Walking

"Some of the best prison art I've ever seen."--Norman Mailer
