Presentation of Exonerated Artist Jim Fogle and Innocence Project Attorney Karen Thompson.

Jim Fogle served 34 years in prison for a heinous crime he did not commit. The Indiana County, PA native developed an interest in art early in life, and as he served time in prison, he continued to pursue his passion. The West Virginia Innocence Project and the Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) are proud to welcome Jim Fogle to the Davis Gallery and share both his art and unique story of injustice. This exhibition celebrates his one-year anniversary of freedom.

In conjunction with the exhibit, we hope you can join us on Sunday, September 11 at 2:00 p.m. for a discussion with Jim Fogle and his attorney from the Innocence Project, Karen Thompson, at G20 Ming Hsieh Hall. The exhibit and the discussion are WVU Campus Read event for Bryan Stevenson’s book, Just Mercy.
