Art & Well-being

Art & Well-being Program held at the Cook County Department of Corrections, Women's Division in collaboration with teaching artist Loui L. Butler and Sheyssa Rosado.

The Art & Well-being program transforms the women's jail tier 

into an art studio; a space where women have the opportunity to explore their creativity by creating mixed media art journals 

while learning & practicing mindfulness meditation techniques.

Artwork is rotated and exhibited in our gallery, The People's Gallery, on a seasonal basis.
