Lorton: Paper & Lens presents two, concurrent exhibitions dedicated to Carceral Art. The small gallery features works on paper from the Lorton Art Program, an award-winning, non-profit organization founded in 1975 and led by Mia Choumenkovitch that provides education and training in the fine arts to thousands of residents of the DC Department of Corrections. The large gallery features archival photographs from the Lorton Photography Darkroom, an award-winning program started in 1981 by DC-based freelance photographer, Karen Ruckman that taught residents the art of photography, developing an important educational resource and creative outlet that lasted until 1988. Lorton: Paper & Lens examines four principles: human life and dignity, human rights, a Catholic commitment to vulnerable populations, and restorative justice.
