Incarceration and Imagination: Artists from Behind the Wall (Exhibit of spectacular artwork, for the Brunswick Art Walk venue Portland Pie Company, by prisoners across the U.S. – many of whom are College Guild students.

By viewing this artwork in our community, the public can see a side of prisoners that otherwise goes unnoticed and unappreciated. This spectacular exhibit will be displayed at Portland Pie Company on Maine Street until Oct. 1. College Guild (CG) is a Brunswick-based 501(c)3 nonprofit which – for 15 years – has been the nation’s only free correspondence school that is available to any incarcerated man or woman in the U.S.  CG works in close partnership with Bowdoin and Bates College, offering prisoners desperate to learn a variety of 25 enriching courses CG logoincluding Art of the Masters, Drawing from the Inside Out, Precision Drawing,  and others such as Journalism, Philosophy, Biography and Marine Biology. One student, Paul B- designed this logo for CG and wrote, “Education is the key to freedom. Your compassion really does make a great difference in the lives and spirits of everyone!” FMI: 207.729.0043 or collegeguild@gmail.com.
