YACsters and students from Carmel High are teaming up in a new exhibit, “Build Bridges Not Walls” in the Monterey Peace and Justice Center’s Art Gallery. The opening reception is next Friday, September 20th, from 5-7pm, on 1364 Fremont Blvd. in Seaside.

When asked to create new artwork the students asked themselves what it means to “Build Bridges Not Walls,” and “What does Peace mean to you?” The students’ body of work, under the direction of Carmel Visual Art instructors as well as mentorship from the after school art studio Youth Arts Collective, includes photography, graphics, paintings and drawings.  Students from Carmel High and YAC will participate in the free open reception, which is open to the public with refreshments.

The exhibit runs through October 31, 2019.  The artwork is available for viewing Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM and when the Peace Center is open for public events.
