EXHIBIT

Catching the Chain: Life and Death in Texas Prisons 1845-2017

OCTOBER 31 - DECEMBER 19  
1ST FLOOR EXHIBIT CASES

Catching the Chain: Life and Death in Texas Prisons 1845-2017 is an exhibit produced through collaboration between the Center for Texas Public History at Texas State University, the Texas State Common Experience, and various cultural and law enforcement institutions across the state. It highlights the history of the Texas state prison system from its inception in 1845 and into the modern era. The exhibit focuses on everyday life of convicts throughout this time, as well as notable events and changes that led to establishment of the modern Texas Department of Criminal Justice. A section of the exhibit also deals with the use of the death penalty throughout this period and how and why the practice has changed within the state.
