    Many of you know that I run a job program for a state prison with 1100 male inmates. I have 200 men who are paid to make quilts. My other job there is coordinating the In-Cell Hobby Shop program. Friday night, the first ever Inmate Art Exhibit opened with a reception. The Center just had a total renovation & looks beautiful for this dirty little oil town! Here are a couple of pictures of the exhibit.

    Enjoy!

    You truly should be commended. You have given these men a venue to express themselves in a creative way. Great job!

    Do they make the quilts for charity or to sell to cover expenses?
