Friend of Prison Policy Initiative artist Paul Rucker has been awarded a prestigious grant from Creative Capital to make more art about mass incarceration. His 2009 project, Proliferation, was inspired by the map of U.S. Prison Proliferation, 1900-2000 by PPI’s Rose Heyer. Don’t miss the review of Proliferation on CityArts. Congratulations Paul!
