Cleveland Public Library

The Cleveland Public Library worked in partnership with the Aperture Foundation to reframe the conversation around incarceration in the United States with a photography exhibition titled Prison Nation, supported by the Art for Justice Fund, at a critical moment for Ohio audiences. This exhibition at the Cleveland Public Library underscored the humanity of incarcerated people as Ohio prepared to vote on Issue #1 (Neighborhood Safety, Drug Treatment, and Rehabilitation Amendment).

The Aperture Foundation, founded in New York City in 1953, produces, publishes, and presents photography projects that stimulate dialogue on the role of images in contemporary culture. Through publication of Aperture magazine, the organization aims to bring new voices and points of view into the art world.
