Throughout the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years, under the guidance of the well-known local artist and East St. Louis, IL native, Edna Patterson-Petty, students from the Christian Activity Center (CAC) after-school program in East St. Louis produced multi-media artwork, repurposing found objects from around their city, incorporating items they have collected in their travels. The works tell the story of a new generation of East St. Louisans, full of ideas, dreams, talent and hope. This CAC program was funded by Go! International, and more information can be found atwww.go-int.org
