Hosted by the Virginia Commonwealth University Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Department, "On Our Own Doorstep" showed work that referenced resisting institutionalized systems of violence and oppression. This show was coordinated by students in the service-learning class focused on the Prison-Industrial Complex. The art was contributed by VCU students, faculty, and Richmond community members. Also on display was an engaging installation of creative writing from the Richmond City Jail.
