Art At The Airport's spring exhibit ''You Are Everything!'' begins April 6 at Groton-New London Airport

The Cultural Coalition is pleased to announce the Art At The Airport program's spring exhibit You Are Everything! - Artwork from incarcerated & formerly incarcerated women. Organized by the Community Partners in Action (CPA) Prison Arts Program, this exhibition features a selection of new and old artwork from women whose artistic careers began at York Correctional Institution (CI) in Niantic, Connecticut.
The exhibit is free and open to the public to view from April 6 to June 30 at the Groton - New London Airport's main terminal,155 Tower Avenue in Groton. The terminal is open daily from 7am to 6pm with free and accessible parking. Face mask use and 6 foot distancing protocols in effect.
Over the years, Prison Arts has turned various spots at York CI into a vibrant arts workshop, a place for collective endeavors, encouragement, critiques, and a moment in the prison that is not the prison. Artists have created murals for the visiting room, gifts for their loved ones, and personal, evolving bodies of artwork for themselves. 
Community Partners in Action (CPA) is a non-profit agency created in 1875 as the Prisoners' Friend Corporation. CPA focuses on behavioral change and advocates for criminal justice reform. The Prison Arts Program started in 1978 and works inside Connecticut prisons to change the lives of the incarcerated and the prison environment by encouraging unique, personal and evolving artistic pursuits.
Working with the Connecticut Department of Correction, the CPA Prison Arts Program promotes self-examination and self-esteem in Connecticut inmates through participation in visual arts classes, exhibitions and publications, and brings the talent and creativity of the prison population to the community at large.
Jeffrey Greene, Prison Arts Program Manager, explains, "Our role is to be a motivator, and we target those inmates who wish to truly understand the process of learning and self criticism and who will continue to grow as artists and as human beings.” For more information about the CPA Prison Arts Program, including a list and photos of previous exhibitions, visit
