The biggest jail cell is not inside the walls of prison, but that which some have built around their lives, Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone told several inmates at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center last week.
Stone was one of several attendees at the facility’s first graduating class ceremony from Celebrate Recovery, a nondenominational 12-step program for dealing with addictions and other issues.
Until Thursday, residents will have the opportunity to see the artistic stylings of Grambling State University faculty and staff members in a special show.
The exhibit features paintings, digital photography, mixed media works, ceramics and drawings completed by faculty and staff members Drek Davis, Larry Holston, Donna McGee, Tommie Sue Slaughter and Terence C. Williams III.
A closing reception with all artists present will be held from 4:30-6 p.m. Thursday in the Dunbar Gallery, located on Hutchinson Street on GSU’s campus.
