ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An art exhibit featuring work by female inmates is entering its final week for submissions.

Bernalillo County Cultural Services and the Southwest Women’s Law Center are seeking art of a show by area women artists and women artists detained at the Metropolitan Detention Center.

The show also will feature work by young women in juvenile detention at the Bernalillo County Youth Services Center.

The exhibit will be offered in March at the African American Performing Arts Center Gallery in conjunction with National Women’s History Month.

Nan Masland, public art project coordinator for cultural services at the county’s Parks and Recreation Department, says the idea was born after the law center approached the department on showcasing work by women preparing to reintegrate into society.
