Street Academy Students Honored by Flower Heritage Foundation

The OEZSA Urban Arts Class participated in the “Don’t Turn Your Back on AIDS” Art Competition. DTYBOA provides an interactive environment where high school students learn the imperative information regarding HIV risk and prevention.

All the placing artists were invited to an Art Exhibition and award ceremony at the Waterfront Hotel in Oakland.  The event allowed students/teachers to meet one another and appreciate each others artwork.  Students art was auctioned to raise funds for the DTYBOA and people affected and infected with disease.
