Come along to an Art Tour at Fremantle Prison on Tuesday 28 February at 5pm. Please note that some of the content is quite graphic in nature and includes prisoner graffiti. On the other hand, much of the art is spectacular and executed by prisoners who were very talented artists. The Art Tour provides a fascinating insight into the psychology and emotional wellbeing or otherwise of the prisoners who spent time inside.The tour will go for one hour and will not involve stairs. Matthew, who is a great guide will take us to visit the art murals in the exercise yards, plus talk about the conservation project involving the restoration of the solitary confinement block, plus show you through the Main Cell Block. Please meet at the entrance to the prison.
