LA Youth Art Exhibit | My Voice

High school students from CALS Early College High School in Downtown Los Angeles hosted an art exhibit to raise awareness of the cost of war. More than 500 visitors viewed the exhibit on one night, Thursday, Sept. 8, during Downtown ArtWalk night.

The exhibit will have an extended opening through November. Students used the evening as a special occasion to raise money for much needed art supplies for next year’s Peace Exhibit at AFSC’s Friends Gallery.

Students were on hand to discuss their work, and how our country could have addressed a number of national and local issues instead of war. $60 was raised, and the students were proud of it!

Check out the great pictures here.

The "My Voice" exhibit was also a part Ten Years and Counting.
