Who you gotta kill around here to get some art?

Who you gotta kill around here to get some art?

A mug shot can haunt a person: We regularly gets requests to pull pics from our website. It can change a person: Remember Jeremy Meeks, the "hot mug shot guy?" He started modeling after his release.

A mug shot can also be the motivation for a work of art or two... or 32. Swell Artist Collective presents 32 Cells, an exhibition of new works by 32 local artists, who looked to bios of former Idaho Pen inmates for inspiration.

All the works, which will be on display at the Old Idaho Penitentiary will be for sale, as will beer, wine and food; and proceeds from the $6 entry fee will help fund field trips for kids—32 Cells, however, is for grownups. Due to the subject matter, this event is 21-and-older only.
