Clark Humanities Museum (SCR)
Prison Obscura (Exhibit)
Prison Obscura presents rarely seen vernacular, surveillance, evidentiary, and prisoner-made photographs, shedding light on the prison industrial complex.  It builds the case that Americans must face these images to grasp the proliferation of the U.S. Prison system and to connect with those it confines.  It encourages visitors to ask why tax-paying, prison-funding citizens rarely get the chance to see such images and to consider what roles such pictures play for those within the system.
Museum hours:  Monday ~ Friday, 9:00 a.m. ~ 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. ~ 5:00 p.m.
