Design by WVU Student and Incarcerated Artist

APBP intern Kristin, a student at WVU, and Maruice, an incarcerated artist, worked together to create a drawing that represents many of our organization’s core values.

A book, to represent education; a key, to represent freedom; mountains, to represent Appalachia; and olive branches to symbolize peace.

Thanks to both Kristin and Maurice for this lovely piece of artwork.

  1. Hi, before I was born my dad was incarcerated and the Appalachian somewhere in Kentucky. His name was Donald Ray Webb…. he passed 16 years ago. I’m now 37 and he had paintings that were sold all over. He told me he was in a book about art in prisons. I am hoping to find it.
