Master of Light Screening and Panel Discussion with John Jay College

December 7, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

From John Jay College of Criminal Justice:

Join us for a special screening of the award-winning film Master of Light, followed by a panel discussion with the documentary’s featured artist, George Anthony Morton, producer Anousha Nzume, and Represent Justice CEO Daniel Forkkio, moderated by Art for Justice Director Helena Huang.

Master of Light depicts the transformative journey of George Anthony Morton, a classical painter who spent ten years in federal prison for dealing drugs. While incarcerated, he nurtured his craft and unique artistic ability. The artist uses painting to heal his trauma and uplift justice-impacted youth.

The Master of Light impact campaign will bring the healing practice of art to incarcerated youth nationwide, and raise awareness around the importance of broad inclusion of Black and formerly incarcerated artists in our nation’s art institutions. George Anthony Morton and the film team have partnered with Represent Justice for the campaign.
Please Note:
