CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Artwork by New Hampshire Department of Corrections inmates and their children will be on display at the Kimball Jenkins Estate in Concord next month.

Nine life-size murals titled “A Perfect Day with Dad” and three posters titled “A Family Portrait with Mom” created by male and female inmates and their children in 2012 and 2013 will be on display starting April 7.

The projects were created during the first two Children of Incarcerated Parents summer camps, a collaboration between the department and Child and Family Services’ Camp Spaulding.

The department says one in 28 children in the United States has a parent who is incarcerated.

“This is an excellent opportunity for members of the public to learn about the impact of incarceration on an entire family,” said Corrections Commissioner William Wrenn.

Carol Fennelly of Washington, D.C., creator of the first prison camps for children and their incarcerated fathers, is the guest speaker at an opening reception on April 9 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Kimball Jenkins.

The exhibit continues through April 24.
