Last year, if you were on our subscriber list, you received our video featuring mural artist, Alex Cook, who paints colorful, positive message inside prisons and jails.

It was such a powerfully inspiring video we thought you might want to see it again. The scene takes place inside the chapel at a men’s jail in Santa Ana, CA.

Watch how Alex and several inmates COMPLETELY transform a large wall in a space composed of cinder block, concrete, steel, and drab colors.

While we weren’t allowed to use a video camera on the inside, we got a time-elapsed camera to capture Alex’s amazing and colorful vision all the way from start to finish.

I’m hoping this short video brings a smile to your heart, and face.

Happy New Year from the entire Light in Prison team.
