Opening at Columbia Law School, New York

Join us for the New York opening of “Windows on Death Row: Art from Inside and Outside the Prison Walls.” This extraordinary collaborative project displays more than 60 works drawn from people on death row, as well as from some of America’s top political cartoonists.

Joining them will be 56-year-old painter Ndume Olatushani, who spent 20 years on death row for a crime he did not commit, as well as Columbia Law School faculty George Kendall and Brett Dignam. Bill Keller, editor-in-chief of The Marshall Project and former executive editor of The New York Times, will moderate the roundtable discussion.
