New Art Installation in Alcatraz


Alcatraz, best known for the historic federal penitentiary and occupation by the Indians of All Tribes, also has a long tradition of welcoming artists to provoke thought about freedom and incarceration. Shortening: Making Irrational Rational is a new installation, by New York City artist Nelson Saiers, that is open now through January 15th, 2017. The new installation incorporates properties of the number Pi, prison vernacular and NFL football jerseys to weigh in on the “irrationally” long prison sentences given for minor, nonviolent drug offenses and the need to shorten those sentences. For more information about the exhibit and to book access to Alcatraz Island, visit www.alcatrazcruises.com.
