    Medium: Paper cast from letters of prisoners

    By Treacy Ziegler


    This sculpture is paper cast from the letters of prisoners. In the Prisoner Express program of the Center for Transformative Action, we have approximately 6,000 members who are living in prisons throughout the United States. We receive about 20,000 letters annually. I wanted to create sculpture that gave homage and respect to the emotions I read in these letters - hope, regret, loneliness, despair, humor and many other feelings.
