Upcoming Events

71st Scripps College Ceramics Annual
January 24-April 5, 2015

Julia Haft-Candell, guest curator, presents a selection of hybrid works, including ceramics with other materials, that, as she says, “hint at the familiar and steer toward the indefinable.”

Prison Nation: Posters on the Prison Industrial Complex
March 12-April 9, 2015
Clark Humanities Museum

"Prison Nation" includes posters addressing the critical issues discussed above in keeping with SPG's goal to demonstrate to the general public and to the art world the importance of the political poster and the importance of art to social commentary. The exhibition illustrates the graphic history of past and current prison movements, their causes, challenges and hopes. The dynamic designs cover many of the critical issues surrounding the system of mass incarceration—with a focus on California—including: racial disparity in sentencing, the War on Drugs, immigration, the death penalty, the Three Strikes law, violence against women, access to education and health care, youth incarceration, prison labor, divestment, privatization, torture, and re-entry into the community.
