On Thursday August 1st, I had the opportunity to appear on local American talk radio host – Peter B. Collins’ show at the MARIN TV studio in San Rafael to discuss PATH, show and share inmate art, as well as PATH’s important and exciting upcoming events - One in particular at the Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Pigeon Forge, TN. But, more about the Alcatraz Art Escape show later!
For those who are interested, you can upload and watch the 28 minutes archived video interview by logging on HERE!
Some of the points covered during the course of the interview include, PATH’s background and beginnings; PATH’s Mission, implementation and benefits to the community; and various exhibits PATH has installed since its inception in 2015; the importance of art in the prison system; the myriad of wonderful artwork and hand crafted sculptures created by incarcerated artists; how incarceration not only affects the inmate, but their respective families and communities, as well.
Peter B. Collins also shares with his talk show audience his own experiences with a death row inmate at San Quentin and his art.
Thank you Peter for inviting me. And, a special thanks shout out to to recording engineer, Carl Laur for his marvelous editing work.
Hope you enjoy! Thank you as always for your interest. Any comments are always welcome.
Important: Please note that the political views of the show’s host may not necessarily be that of PATH, PATH’s fiscal sponsor – MarinLink – or that of the incarcerated artists affiliated with PATH.
