Amber Foster and Tony Hudson are thrilled with the artwork being generated for Artlink's Second Chances Exhibit, this piece by Jeffrey Crane.

Artlink's Second Chances Exhibit opens this Friday and gives visitors a chance to learn about redemption, up close and personal.

The project is a collaboration between Artlink and Blue Jacket, Inc. which is a non-profit that helps ex-inmates and disadvantaged people get job training and find employment.

The exhibit features the work of 13 area artists who were each paired with a Blue Jacket graduate to tell their personal stories of triumph.

WBOI's Julia Meek met with the executive directors of both organizations, Amber Foster and Tony Hudson, to learn more about the project and its impact.
