The ATP partnered with freshmen in a project-based learning class at ASU to put on “(Ink)arcerated: Creativity within Confinement,” an art show held at the Unexpected Gallery in Phoenix on May 5, 2017. The show featured 70 pieces made from men incarcerated in East, North, Central, and South units in Florence. Prior to the show, students in the course visited with inside ATP members in Florence to learn more about life on the inside and to tour East Unit.
