Lt. Governor Juliana Stratton toured the Old Joliet Prison recently with the local artist collective, the Old Joliet Prison Burnt District Artists. The Burnt District Artists gave Lt. Gov. Stratton a short tour of the Administration Building and conducted an artist round table discussion. The visit was scheduled earlier this year when Lt. Gov. Stratton met Sue Regis, a Downtown Joliet artist who founded the Burnt District Artists and the Art Movement, Inc., while attending a graduation at Stateville Correctional Center. Regis worked with inmates in the Restorative Arts program.
