Throughout Black History Month, the Visionairi Foundation is partnering with the University of Arkansas to host incARceraTed: Art Transforming Lives. incARceraTed is a series of events focused on the arts, criminal justice and life transformation. We will engage the Northwest Arkansas community on stringent issues of criminal justice and capital punishment reform, entrepreneurship and hope.
The second event is a screening of the film, FREE MEN, at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art on February 15th. Told through the charismatic voice of inmate Kenneth Reams, FREE MEN is a film about human resilience. In solitary confinement for the last 25 years, Kenneth has pushed back the walls of his cell to become a painter, a poet, the founder of a non-profit organization and an art event organizer – all while fighting for his own justice. This event is free and open to the public.
Special thanks to the African and African American Studies Program, Office for Diversity and Inclusion, Black Alumni Society, Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, Sam M. Walton Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Black Graduate Students’ Association and Black Student Association for overwhelming support of this very unique opportunity to demonstrate the power of art to bring awareness and redress to systemic injustices, and the life transformation that becomes possible.
