The Pen Project contains various works from inmates around the country. The gallery is open to the public at the Heyde Center in Chippewa Falls until March 28, 2019.

The Pen Projects multimedia art gallery will remain on display at the Heyde Center in Chippewa Falls until March 28. The exhibit features works from incarcerated people across the country who have submitted both art and poetry through the project’s prison based program.

The center hosted an artist reception Thursday to help raise awareness in the community about the non-profit and feature works from several contributors. Ramone’s Ice Cream Parlor and coffee from Shift were available to guests on a donation basis and all proceeds were returned to The Pen Project.

Keri White who organized the project with her husband Chad said she is happy with the current state of The Pen Project and hopes for it to continue to grow into the future. She hopes to hold a similar event again next year as submissions from inmates continue to consistently reach her.
