“There is a kind of spirituality I find inside Madison. Since the first time I laid eyes on one of the murals, I feel that I’ve been chosen to tell its story. It’s like a voice, one that I must serve…. Inside Madison will be a testament to the confined human spirit in all of its anger, confusion, hope… and beauty.”
