Come meet and hear Antonio Inniss whose Cell Solace Collection is on display at the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists. Born in Roxbury, Inniss has collected a remarkable body of extraordinary containers ranging from hand bags to jewelry boxes all made by inmates in American prisons and jails from the 1930s to the 1970s, and all made of cigarette wrappings, cartons and US postage stamps. Hear how this young man became passionately interested in these striking works and how he continues to hunt, find and collect these unique objects.
