The SJSU Record Clearance Project helps people move forward with their lives, opening doors to new futures. For those who have been in custody, incarceration commonly is a time of darkness and despair. For some, the experience of confinement leads to creative release through art.

This exhibit features the art of several individuals who find freedom in art. They create as a means of self-expression and connection with others, to share their vision with those who would see the world through their eyes. The artwork featured is from clients of the Record Clearance Project (RCP).

RCP has two programs: Service Navigation Mentoring Program and Legal Services. The Mentoring Program assists people as they leave custody to move forward in their lives. With the guidance of experienced mentors who have had their own criminal records expunged, justice-involved individuals gain structure and life skills to open doors to new futures. Creating art helps with healing. The Legal Services program informs people regarding their rights to a clear record, advises them about steps in clearing their record, and represents them in court.

Their art and creation enrich us all.
