Peter Jemison, Henry Payer, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Julie Buffalo Head, Lewis deSoto, Robyn Tsinnajinnie, and Terran Last Gun.

In 2021 SHAG partnered with the Art For Justice Fund to present the exhibition Systemic Impact: Process and Experimentation of (Formerly) Incarcerated Artists organized with curator Dr. Nicole Fleetwood and artist Jesse Krimes. The show presented never-before-seen works by artists who have been incarcerated and impacted by the US prison system: Mary Baxter, Tameca Cole, Russell Craig, James “Yaya” Hough, Asia Johnson, Jesse Krimes, Mark Loughney, Jared Owens, and Gilberto Rivera. Festival programming included panels with the Right of Return Fellowship, a national effort to support formerly incarcerated artists founded by Jesse Krimes and Russell Craig, and Worth Rises, founded by Bianca Tylek, leading efforts to dismantle the $80 billion US prison industry.
