About the Book
Art + Poetry is the culmination of a project of words and images conducted at the Oregon Youth Authority's Oak Creek facility for young women, in Albany, Oregon. Nine young women participated in the program; Breanna, Brianna, Britney, Crystalrain, Jody, Liz, Mercedes, Precious and Sierra. The images and words reveal internal worlds and the world beyond the confining walls of Oak Creek. Look. Read. Be moved.
