The First Freedoms in Captivity exhibition explores the relationship that incarcerated veterans have with the First Amendment through artwork created by residents of Maine prisons. First Amendment Museum’s CEO Christian Cotz and Manager of Outreach Engagement Deborah Williams give their views on the project. Special guests Commissioner Randall Liberty of the Maine Department of Corrections and David Greenham, interim Executive Director of the Maine Arts Commission, will also be providing their thoughts. Then, we will unveil and display all of the artwork created by the incarcerated veterans. +++ The First Amendment Museum is a non-partisan museum that inspires us to “Live Our Freedoms” by understanding and using our First Amendment rights – religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition – to advance democracy. The First Freedoms in Captivity exhibition is part of Maine Freedom & Captivity, a coalition-based public humanities project that includes over 50 participating organizations and institutions from across Maine. First Freedoms in Captivity will be on display at the First Amendment Museum from September 8 through December 31, 2021.
