Dave Wheeler of Wheeler Custom Creations is working on a piece salvaged from the Old Joliet Prison “Burnt District.”  This sculpture, when finished, will be displayed at the Great Joliet Prison Break-In on August 24, 2019.  We’ll be highlighting the progression of this piece as it nears completion.
