Traditionally, the Stations of the Cross are a series of 14 paintings or carvings representing successive incidents during Jesus' progress from his condemnation by Pilate to his crucifixion and burial. In this adaptation, the artist Mary Button invites viewers to see Jesus' suffering in light of our modern practice of incarceration and imprisonment. Particular stations address: the War on Drugs, mandatory minimums, 3 strikes legislation, racial disparities in sentencing, the violence endemic in American prisons, the privatization of prison labor, and more. You can preview the full series here or purchase prints or digital downloads below.
