‘The San Quentin Project’ challenges how we see life inside prison

It’s easy to write off prison as a faceless holding pen for the convicted. San Francisco-based artist and photographer Nigel Poor challenges us to see prison in a new light.

On display at the Milwaukee Art Museum through March 10, “The San Quentin Project: Nigel Poor and the Men of San Quentin State Prison” explores the rich personal narratives of inmates, countering misperceptions and stereotypes of prison populations.

By mixing Poor’s visual work with audio from the podcast “Ear Hustle, The San Quentin Project,” the display sheds light on a misunderstood, and regretfully significant, portion of the American population.
