A self-taught artist who spent 45 years in prison for a crime committed when he was 17 years old, Martin Vargas has participated in the Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners since its inception in 1996. He has created hundreds of pieces of art, one of which was gifted to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor during her visit to University of Michigan in 2017.

Earlier this year, Martin came home after more 45 years of incarceration. Join us and celebrate Martin at Detroit Street Filling Station (300 Detroit St., Ann Arbor, MI 48104) as he opens his solo exhibition in Ann Arbor on Oct 17, 2018 (reception at 5:30 p.m.). The exhibition opens through December, 2018 (11 am - 9 pm, Tuesday - Saturday; 10 am - 3 pm on Sunday; Closed on Monday)

This Exhibition is co-sponsored by Detroit Street Filling Station
