Paul Brach Lecture Series

During that time, Hough came to understand the root causes of what led him to prison. He also continued his education to better empower himself and others. Since 2006, Hough has put his artistic talent to work with Mural Arts Philadelphia as a muralist, completing over 50 projects in Philadelphia, State Correctional Institution (SCI) Graterford and SCI Phoenix. He is involved in Decarcerate PA! and Project LifeLines and seeks to be part of changing the prison system in Pennsylvania and abolishing Life Without Parole. In the summer of 2019, Hough was released from SCI Phoenix. He is now living in Pittsburgh again and making art.

All lectures are free, open to the public, and presented online. RSVP required.
