The Only Door I Can Open: Women Exposing Prison Through Art and Poetry is a visual art exhibition presented online by Museum of the African Diaspora(MoAD), curated from within prison by Empowerment Avenue’s Tomiekia Johnson and Chantell Jeannette, in partnership with Flyaway Productions. Through visual art and poetry, artists will tell their story in their own way.
The exhibition currently includes visual artists and poets incarcerated at the Central California Women’s Facility at Chowchilla (CCWF). We are looking to recruit 3 more artists that identify as women, trans or non-binary, who are of African descent and formerly incarcerated, to participate in this online exhibition presented by MoAD in October 2023. Selected artists will be compensated $500 for their participation.
