Medium and Materials

Incarcerated artists often face barriers to accessing artistic materials that are readily available in the free world, whether that is because certain materials are not allowed in prison or they are prohibitively expensive. As a result, many artists push the limits of what materials can be used to produce art. These statements illuminate the innovative methods, materials, and media that artists have used to make art in prison and how some artists have embraced traditional methods of making art as well.
