Native American Flag Decal - Madison Jail, Maricopa County, Arizona

Detention Officers passively allowed inmates to express themselves in otherwise punishable ways. The interior walls are, in some places, covered with complex, layered, artful articulations of the inmates’ experiences, ethnic identities, gender and sexuality issues, political statements, and hopes of release and redemption.

  1. good use of ironic political imagery

    • I’m sure that the juxtaposition was intentional on the part of the artist, even though I don’t know who did it. It seems obvious that it was a statement.
