Huffington Post — Rodrigo Ribera D’Ebre wrote about his time spent with the Community-Based Art project at Cal State San Bernardino, which brings art to state prison inmates.
“Recently I had the opportunity to witness one of these programs at the California Institute for Men in Chino — in collaboration with the California State University, San Bernardino,” D’Ebre wrote. “Community-Based Art (CBA) seeks to engage the community in the art-making process through a place-based effort, where students facilitate art classes and programs through a collaborative process to under-served community sites — like prison. For ten-week sessions, student-led programs in the C-Yard provide the resources and tools to effectively engage inmates in a creative process and dialogue. Not only are they given devices to practice making art, but they are challenged to perceive art in non-traditional ways — and talk about it.”
