Works created by artists from Mural Arts Philadelphia’s Guild program and SCI Phoenix.

Visions is an exhibition of original artwork created by participants in Mural Arts Philadelphia’s Guild program and artists at SCI Phoenix, southeast Pennsylvania’s maximum-security prison for men. The Guild is a paid apprenticeship that gives justice-impacted young people the opportunity to develop marketable job skills, reconnect with their community, and explore the transformative power of art. Artists at SCI Phoenix work year-round in a dedicated studio space creating public art for Mural Arts and personal bodies of work, from which the pieces in Visions are drawn.

The artworks in Visions bear witness to the artists’ lived experiences, manifest their creative spirit, and evoke unrealized dreams. The exhibition gives voice to the perspectives of individuals who are otherwise largely silent in our society.

On view in the first-floor classroom of the Collection Gallery.
