"It's Not Essential What We Are But Rather How We Fight For Our Future" by Shukzallah Sherzael, age 15

The artwork presented in this show is the product of students of the River of Words K-12 curriculum that reaches out to young people all over world, engaging them in an exploration of their watersheds through inter-disciplinary (poetry, drawing, painting, science) place-based education.  Through teacher training, publications, exhibitions, and advocacy, River of Words strives to inspire and empower future generations of informed and compassionate earth stewards through hands-on, investigative and fun experiences of the world around them.  It was founded in 1995 by writer Pamela Michael and then-US Poet Laureate Robert Hass.

Garage Gallery is located at 3110 Wheeler Street, Berkeley; one block East of Shattuck, three blocks South of Ashby.  Please note that the gallery is usually only open on Saturday afternoons.
