About the Exhibit

Photographs by Lori Waselchuk, award-winning documentary photographer and arts activist, and quilts by incarcerated hospice volunteers at Louisiana State Penitentiary will be on display.

Book cover - GRace Before DyingThe exhibit tells the story of prisoners in Louisiana's infamous Angola Penitentiary and how their hospice program--run by one staff nurse and a team of inmate volunteers-- is helping to transform one of the nation's most dangerous maximum security prisons into one of the least violent.

This ground-breaking program at Angola is documented in the book, also entitled Grace Before Dying, which contains photographs by Waselchuk and essays by Lawrence N. Powell.
