“What secrets do we leave in our beds?”
10 visual artists currently incarcerated at the Central California Women’s Facility at Chowchilla tell their story in their own way, reflecting the sanctity of women’s private lives.
“No matter the mistakes I make, my bed accepts me for who I am; it appreciates all I do...I can take off my clothes, drama, armor, problems, and drop my responsibilities to focus—unlocking my day, examining my circle, reflecting on my overtime work—being all I can be.”
- Curator, Tomiekia Johnson
