Behind These Prison Walls: Rikers Island Exhibition
May 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Join us for this important exhibition, one night only.
Former Rikers Island Corrections officer, visual artist, and author Lorenzo Steele Jr. takes viewers into the nation’s most violent adolescent jail on Rikers Island. Lorenzo uses photography and a personal testimony that will take individuals on a visual journey into the “Bing”, the adolescent solitary confinement unit. All images on display were taken during the period (1987-1999) which was one of the most violent and brutal eras in Rikers Islands history.
