artistic noise: art from the juvenile detention system and beyond Steamroll Print Project
In support of growing efforts to improve the service and court user experience in Family Court, Artistic Noise is partnering with the Bronx Family Court to enrich the Family Court's public areas and courtrooms with visual art created by youth with firsthand experience of the court's juvenile justice system. These large scale prints were created as a part of this project. The youth involved in Artistic Noise's Art, Entrepreneurship & Curatorial Program, all of whom have spent a lot of time at the Bronx Family Court, began this year long project by leading a brainstorm sesĀ¬sion with judges and other staff at The Bronx Family Court. Through this meeting the youth, judges and court staff spoke about the messages, themes and content they would like to see in the artwork created for Family Court.

The notes from these meetings were used throughout all of the Artistic Noise programs working on this project and inspired these large-scale prints. The youth designed, hand carved and hand printed these 6' x 3' woodcuts. We hope to print these woodcuts using a steamroller during a community day at Bronx Family Court this year.
