Join us for an exclusive tour of select portraits guided by the artist, Yaya Hough, and curator Paul Farber.

About this Event

As the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at the Office of the District Attorney of Philadelphia, artist James “Yaya” Hough worked to humanize people living and working within systems of criminal justice by cultivating relationships and connections through his artmaking.

Hough built meaningful relationships with individuals from several overlapping circles – formerly incarcerated people, victims’ advocates, and members of the District Attorney’s office – to paint them in portraits and discuss together what justice means to them.

The result is a powerful series of portraits, titled Points of Connection, that provide a window into the larger system, person by person, to approach criminal justice from perspectives of transformation, repair, and growth.

Join us for an exclusive tour of select portraits.

The tour on Saturday, October 17 will be lead by Jane Golden, Executive Director of Mural Arts Philadelphia and artist Akeil Robertson.

The tour on Saturday, October 31 will be lead by artist James "Yaya" Hough and curator Paul Farber.
