Future IDs at Alcatraz is a yearlong project, exhibition, and series of monthly public programs opening February 16, 2019 in the New Industries Building on Alcatraz Island. Since November 2018, the exhibition space has been functioning as an artist studio open to Alcatraz visitors. The installation features ID-inspired artworks created by and with individuals who have conviction histories as they conceive and develop a vision for a future self. In stark contrast to prison-issued IDs, these artworks represent individual stories of transformation.Social practice artist Gregory Sale leads a team that translates criminal justice reform efforts into a visual language to shift thinking about rehabilitation, reentry, and reintegration.
