This program complements the current AWP exhibition Vinny and David: Life and Incarceration of a Family. Vinny and David began in 2012 when photographer Isadora Kosofsky met Vinny, then age 13, as he was booked into a juvenile detention center for stabbing his mother’s assailant. Through Kosofsky’s close relationship with Vinny and eventually, his older brother David, she has captured an intimate look at a family struggling to remain connected throughout recurring periods of incarceration. Vinny and David is open at 625 N. Kingsbury from June 8 to August 10, 2017.
