Each year, tourists visiting San Francisco make the journey across the water to Alcatraz island. Since its closing in 1963, the former federal penitentiary continues to intrigue people of all ages, and likewise, there is a huge fascination with the artwork of prison artists. The two subjects are being brought together at Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The new temporary exhibit called Alcatraz Art Escape will feature artwork inspired by Alcatraz Island and created by incarcerated artists. The exhibit will run through the spring of 2020.
