New Avenues for Youth on KBOO

Listen to the interview here.

Local homeless youth are collaborating with artists and businesses to beautify our town, via New Avenues for Youth.

From the PR: "Billions and Billions of People collaborative art Installation is transforming a construction site into a work of art. With the vision and support from a premier real estate development company, TMT Development, thirty local homeless youth served by New Avenues for Youth had the unique opportunity to work alongside an internationally famed artist, earn a paycheck and feel connected to the city they call home."

That artist would be Chris Johanson. He's going to join me (via phone) - plus the Associate Executive Director Sean Suib and two of the youth participants  - on Art Focus this coming Tuesday, the 3rd of January.
