The University Galleries in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters presented an exhibition titled,“Sharon Daniel: Secret Injustices 2007-2016.” Using digital technology for the presentation of research and scholarship allows artist Sharon Daniel to engage with the public.
Related faculty works were displayed in the Schmidt Center Gallery public space.
Opening up dialogue about crime and punishment, the exhibition challenged the assumption that imprisonment provides a solution to social problems. Daniel collaborated on the exhibition with Wendy Hinshaw, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of English, and with a multidisciplinary group of faculty members in the college.
The multimedia exhibition featured four interactive works. Themes included incarcerated women; poverty and addiction in America; victim and offender mediation practices; and resistance to the injustices of the criminal legal system.
