For the months of December 2014 and January 2015, Portrait Garden was displayed as a series of 100 posters in trains within the Baltimore Light Rail system. This public dissemination was conceived as a moving gallery designed to bring the women metaphorically into the community of Baltimore City.
Portrait Garden is a series of audio and photographic portraits of eleven women incarcerated at Maryland Correctional Institute for Women in Jessup, MD, culminating a 1-1/2 year long collaboration between GBCA Ruby Award winning artist and Associate Professor of Visual Arts Lynn Cazabon.
The artist was interviewed on Midday with Dan Rodricks on WYPR 88.1 FM, Friday, December 19th, 2014.
The complete set of images and audio interviews are available through the project website: http://portraitgarden.org
