California State Senator Curren Price (District 26 – that’s us) is hosting a hearing of the Joint Committee on the Arts this afternoon (May 3 from 1 to 3pm) examining the history of the Arts in Corrections program in California. Can art help to rehabilitate inmates? Can art open the door to at-risk youth, and lead them away from the prison system?
There will be testimony from visual and performance artists, as well as musicians and people working in the prison system with the program.
