Join us for a walkthrough of The Pencil Is a Key: Drawings by Incarcerated Artists led by the exhibition's co-curator Isabella Kapur.

Featuring works produced over a roughly two-hundred-year period, the exhibition presents powerful evidence of the persistence of human creativity in the most inhumane of circumstances and argues for the necessity of art—in the form of drawing—to the life of every human being.
