The show is presented by Humanity for Prisoners, a local nonprofit organization that advocates for prisoners and their families in Michigan.

The exhibit is open to the public from 6-9 p.m. Friday and 2-6 p.m. Saturday at the St. Patrick's Youth Center. 915 Washington Ave.

The event is a fundraiser for Humanity for Prisoners. All of the participating artists have agreed to donate a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of their works to HFP, and many have decided to donate 100 percent.

“We’ve been blown away by some of the magnificent pieces we have received,” said Humanity for Prisoners President Doug Tjapkes. “Some of the prisoners contributing are juried artists, and we’ve already received compliments from other artists on some of the pieces we have. Not only will the public have a chance to view and purchase some fine pieces, but they can also learn more about the work of HFP.”
