Museum Shows Art By Women Incarcerated In Niantic

NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Museum is presenting works of art created by incarcerated women.

The exhibition is called “Shared Dining.” It’s inspired by Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party,” a permanent installation at the museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art Herstory Gallery.

“Shared Dining” runs through Sept. 13.

It’s the work of 10 women serving time at the maximum-security York Correctional Institution in Niantic, Connecticut.

Each created a painted dinner plate complete with chalice and cloth runner — made with materials allowed in prison.

They substituted Styrofoam cups and paper napkins for Chicago’s ceramic gold chalices and cloth napkins. Each work honors a historical or contemporary woman, including Mala Yousafzai and Princess Diana.

Audio recordings of the women’s stories round out the installation.
