BAR NONE’s current Artist-in-Residence is Sheila Phipps. Sheila paints portraits of incarcerated men with wrongful convictions, like her son, acclaimed rapper McKinley “Mac” Phipps, Jr. During her residency, which is taking place in CORE USA's studio space, she is creating a new body of work, teaching painting workshops to currently and formerly incarcerated people, and collaborating with the BAR NONE team to host community events.
