The libraries of Moraine Park Technical College are hosting The Other Side of the Fence, a free exhibit that consists of art created by Wisconsin inmates.


The Moraine Park exhibit features 15 pieces selected from more than 200 drawings and paintings collected by the Beaver Dam Area Arts Association (BDAAA) in collaboration with the Fox Lake Correctional Institution. Most of the artwork was donated by the inmates, and most will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to the BDAAA.


The Other Side of the Fence will be on display at the Beaver Dam campus library through Feb. 26. The exhibit will then be at the West Bend campus library from March 3 to April 15 and will complete its tour at the Fond du Lac campus library from April 20 to May 25.
