Author Dennis Sobin spent 10 years in federal and state prisons when he refused to plead guilty and accept probation for crimes he did not commit. But he didn’t despair while in prison. He used his time to create art and to plan his return to society where he would establish the Prisons Foundation, Safe Streets Arts Foundation, Prison Art Gallery and the Rehabilitation Foundation, ultimately receiving recognition for his accomplishments at the John F. Kennedy Center. Author of the highly praised book, From Prison to Kennedy Center Stage: Starting over at the Top, Sobin’s Art on the Inside highlights the talent and humanity of the many fine artists in prison today. Sobin says, “Without the help of free-world people to encourage and support my work during my ten years of imprisonment, I would not have survived with my soul and mind intact.”
