Project Description

After two years of making art alongside men at the Grafton Correctional Institution, and printing one anthology of the work they have made (Dear Fazzoli’s), we are continuing our work with the participants in our writing and art class to create work to be featured in a second edition of our anthology and other types of publications. The future publications will take the form of a formal, printed book, like the first edition, and will also borrow from the radical DIY aesthetic and process that has allowed marginalized artists to publish and circulate work without engaging in the mainstream publishing industry—through handmade books and zines. We envision this project as a preservation of the legacy of the individuals we’ve been lucky enough to encounter along the way.
