Transformation: Art From Within

Transformation: Art From Within is an illuminating exhibit that affirms how art enables incarcerated men and women in Santa Clara County to tap into their humanity, their spirit and their gifts. Workshops conducted by volunteers, under the auspices of CIC Ministries (Correctional Institutions Chaplaincy) at Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas, California, provide an opportunity for the inmates to create unique and visually stunning, reflective, and thought-provoking works that can touch the very soul of the viewer.


These exhibitions and related programs are supported in part by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation; Silicon Valley Creates, in partnership with the County of Santa Clara and California Arts Council; by a Cultural Affairs grant from the City of San Jose; and the Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association.
