Murals by families impacted by incarceration go on display
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A new set of murals created by parents and children dealing with incarceration are on display in Concord.
The artworks were made by incarcerated parents and their children through a program with the Department of Corrections’ Family Connection Center. New Hampshire Public Radio reports the objective of the 12 murals is to depict what a perfect day with their entire family together would look like.
Department Program Administrator Kristina Toth says project participation is contingent on an inmate displaying good behavior, so it incentivizes participants to stay out of trouble. Toth says also it gives an opportunity for children to connect with their parents in a way they might not be able to do otherwise.
The murals are on display through Friday at the Kimball-Jenkins Estate.
