Prison Arts Collective (PAC) works to expand access to the transformative power of the arts through collaboration and mutual learning that supports the development of self-expression, reflection, communication, and empathy through providing multidisciplinary arts program- ming. The PAC is a project of Arts in Corrections, a partnership between the California Arts Council and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The PAC is based in the School of Art + Design at SDSU and has chapters at CSU San Bernardino and CSU Fresno. Together, these chapters offer weekly arts programming on 15 yards in 12 correctional institutions.

Beyond the Blue is a traveling exhibition of over 100 works of art created by incarcerated participants in PAC programming in California state prisons. The artists seek to transform their lives through art. They express their aim to shift society’s stereotypical image of ‘inmate’ or ‘prisoner’ by sharing their personal expressions, goals, and talents to demonstrate their shared humanity.

In addition to the programming listed above the PAC Advisory board will be hosting a closing reception and silent auction Sunday Mar.1, 2-4p. Please join us.
