Rebecca Copper, Axiom: Judgment Call of the ArtsShare This:
It comes as no surprise that a majority of incarcerated individuals come from lower socioeconomic class and often lack adequate education, proving that our system of governance is failing the people. In Columbus, Ohio, USA, Rebecca Copper has created Axiom: Judgment Call of the Arts, an art engagement between the incarcerated and artists. Over the course of 7 to 9 months, pairs will converse and collaborate on art projects that will then be displayed at an art exhibit accompanied by a virtual artist talk. The project was facilitated with help of Healing Broken Circles, inc. and the artists who have volunteered their time. The participating Columbus artists are as follows: Rachael Anderson, Ryn Osbourne, Walter Herrmann, Alicia Jean Vanderelli, Cameron Granger, CJ Brazelton, Amanda Furnari, Josh Burke, Maritt Vaessin, Jamie Hartman, and Rebecca Copper.
