This year’s show entitled The Shoe Shop will present artwork by students in the Incarcerated Youth Program (IYP). This event is an effort to increase awareness of this important educational and creative initiative. The Incarcerated Youth Program at the DC Jail provides academic services to students between 16 and 22 years of age who have been charged with adult crimes and are detained in the DC Jail.  The IYP allows them to continue work towards their high school diploma or GED while receiving additional services. There will be art of various mediums as well poetry written by students past and present.

This is the second year in a row, that The Fridge has hosted the Incarcerated Youth Art Show.
