i actually do know one guy but i know a few people that correspond with SHU inmates and set up art shows for them to show their work and sell work as well but its very hard to organize these shows because the cdcr which is the prison system hates bascially they give a hard time to the people trying to work with the inmates accusing them of illegal activity but aside that they work hard to get the artwork seen...i will post more pix soon

I owned one of the places that held a Pelican Bay Prison art show (June 2007). Very powerful drawings and very interesing biographies of the artists.

I know a network of artists in PB shu. All these artists are wanting and willing to share their story along with their art. Let me know if I can share some pieces. I have yet to find a way to show and share their art without violating cdcr rules. So any guidance we could help each other with would be appreciated. PamelaPearL17@yahoo.com Best Wishes

I revamped the blog post recently check out the newer one. I added more information. http://swapmeetlives.blogspot.com/2011/12/revisiting-pelican-bay-art.html
if there is any opportunity I hear for prison art wanted I will contact you. As far as the cdcr rules which ones are you referring too?
