Imprints of Transformation: Bali Prison Art

bali art image009thru nov 15
Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church presents artwork from Kerobokon Prison, Bali. The artwork on display was created by prisoners who have taken part in an art education ministry. This program is a product of Myuran Sukumaran, a member of what has become known as the Bali 9. Myuran was executed on April 29 of this year because of his role in a drug crime. His wish for this ministry is to give hope through the arts to those in need during a time a of personal transformation and restoration. “If you don’t accept that people can change, no one has the incentive to change.” —M. Sukumaran
In Bali, skills in drawing, painting and other visual art disciplines can lead prisoners to a new career following their release. The artwork is available for purchase, with all proceeds going to the continuation of the art education program. People can change.
Hours: Monday–Friday 9 a.m.–5p.m. thru church office; Sundays: 8:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m. Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church, 4001 Hendricks Ave, 396-7745.
