Founders of the Arts in Corrections Program in 1977

Founders of the Arts in Corrections Program in 1977

The couple died two days apart from each other. Their story is fascinating, encouraging, creative, and inspiring. Eloise was fundamental in bringing arts to the California prison system, along with her husband Page who is a co-founder of  the William James Association also fundamental to maintaining art and humanity within our community both outside and for those living behind bars.

“that mysterious life-enhancing process we call the arts, a realm in which patient application and vivid imagination so often produce magic.”

~Eloise Smith
