Join us for a film screening and discussion with author, Mitchell S. Jackson.
About the film: While locked up for six years in federal prison, artist Jesse Krimes secretly creates monumental works of art—including an astonishing 40-foot mural made with prison bed sheets, hair gel, and newspaper. He smuggles out each panel piece-by-piece with the help of fellow artists, only seeing the mural in totality upon coming home. As Jesse’s work captures the art world’s attention, he struggles to adjust to life outside, living with the threat that any misstep will trigger a life sentence.
About Mitchell S. Jackson: Jackson is a fellow of the Right of Return program co-founded by Jesse Krimes. Jackson’s new book, Survival Math, is a memoir in which he revisits his upbringing in a Portland neighborhood blighted by drugs, violence, poverty, and governmental neglect.
