Event has passed

    THOMASTON — “Since ending Parole in 1976, Maine has seen a 400% increase in the number of people incarcerated,” said Watts Hall Community Arts, in a news release.

    How did this happen? What is the effect on individuals, families, and communities? How does prison life affect rehabilitation and redemption? How can community support make a difference? 

    The organizers of the current art exhibition "Inside Vision" invite the public to join them Thursday, Aug. 17, at 4:30 p.m., for a presentation and discussion by Maine Prisoner Advocacy Coalition staff Jan Collins and Peter Lehman and others at Watts Hall, 174 Main St., in Thomaston. 

    The exhibit of art created by residents of Maine State Prison will be available for viewing before and after the presentation.

    Free and open to the public.
