I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.
In a new opinion piece, actor Tim Robbins and California Senator Ted Lieu
propose using the arts as one solution to California's prisoner crowding crisis. They point out "Arts-in-corrections programs have helped inmates express and manage their emotions; gain new insights; change destructive behaviors; and transform lives. These programs can bring down the recidivism rate."
