Onto Life’s Pages – Posters from Ohio Prison Arts Connection

August 13 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Six Ohio artists are crafting posters inspired by insights from incarcerated and justice-impacted artists about the importance of the work that they do.

In August, we will release the six posters in a limited edition of fine prints. You can buy the prints at this pop-up show, and online later. The event takes place at Wild Goose Creative’s new space in Franklinton (188 McDowell Street).

We’ll follow this release with a mass run of prints to be distributed widely to schools, community centers, prisons, and on the street. We are partnering with Cincinnati’s Pull Club, a women-owned studio, to advise and teach and to do the screenprinting for the series.

As a part of this project, we are partnering with Cincinnati’s Wave Pool to provide professional artist development workshops for the artists and for other returned citizens.
The first in a series of OPAC artist commissions, this poster
series is designed to pay artists for their work, to promote artwork sales, to get art made by justice-impacted people out in to public space, and to support justice-impacted artists with professional development and networking opportunities.
This project is made possible with support from the Ohio Arts Council, the Greater Columbus Arts Council, and the Art for Justice Fund.
