7:00 AM - 10:00 PM Solitary Confinement Project
On Monday, April 27th, Diversity Services, in conjunction with the Center for Community Engagement, will be taking part in a demonstration to raise awareness and facilitate conversations about the inhumane use of solitary confinement in prisons throughout the United States. In solitary confinement, incarcerated individuals are isolated into cells that are 6’ x 9’ or 7’ x 10’, allowed only one hour outside the cell each day to shower or go outside. While individuals in solitary confinement make up only 4% of the incarcerated population, they account for up to 50% of suicides that happen in incarceration facilities. You can read more about the problems with solitary here.
 
In this demonstration, performers will sit alone in a 7 by 9 foot rectangle for an hour each during the operating hours of an on-campus area frequented by students. By mapping the dimensions of a solitary confinement prison cell onto the the college campus, the demonstration asks those walking through campus to consider the space in relation to their own lives and to step inside the “cells.” The demonstration directs the eye to compare – how many cells fit into a parking space? how many strides does it take to walk through the cell as I’m  going to class? how many cells would fit in my dorm room? By pushing people on campus to confront the marked-off space, the demonstration aims to serve as an entry point or reminder for students to catalyze learning about solitary confinement.
9:00 AM - 7:00 PM "8" -- An Exhibit of Graphic Design Master’s Thesis Work
