York Art Here

Artwork created by York, Alabama 5th and 6th grade students

Your Art Here co-founders Shana Berger and Nathan Purath were resident artists of the Coleman Center for Arts and Culture and the municipalWORKSHOP in May of 2005. They worked with every fifth and sixth grade student in York, where the schools system is still divided along lines of race and economic status. After studying collage art and the idea of community, the students were asked to make drawings about their own communities. All of the drawings were then scanned into the computer and digitally collaged into three art pieces that are currently displayed on billboards throughout the City of York.
