Project: County Jail

In 2010, Kevin McEvoy walked into the Suffolk County Jail in Riverhead and asked if he could teach prisoners to paint. This 2011 Newsday article below offers more details of the project, and Kevin also blogged about his experiences teaching in the prison.

One of the results of the County Jail project was this painting:

Prisoners, by Kevin McEvoy

The painting has appeared at several of Kevin’s showings, including Converge NYC 2012.
