Announcing the 2008 South Berkeley Youth "Art Bench" Competition

Youth Spirit Artworks is holding an art competition for Berkeley
youth, giving young people the opportunity to create art designs for
wooden benches along the Adeline Street Corridor in South Berkeley.
The themes for the bench designs need to relate to health and health
care reform since this is part of a health education campaign in South
and West Berkeley addressing health disparities in our community. The
bench designs chosen will be painted on nine local benches in 2008.
The name of the artist/designer will be designated on each bench.
Designs will be accepted through June 1st. Prizes are available for
the top three designs chosen. For information contact:
Kscottbey at youthspiritartworks.org or call 510-282-0396 or visit the
YSA website at: <http://www.youthspiritartworks.org/>
