This gallery show and silent auction is a collaboration between the Boston University School of Visual Arts and the Dorchester Youth Alternative Academy. DYAA is a small non-profit alternative middle school offering one on one guidance and education for at-risk boys. The works on display and for sale were created in a unique partnership between artists and DYAA students. The artists were given works created by the students during two four- session art workshops lead by three BU SVA students. The artists were then asked to interpret and incorporate the students' work into their own. Everyone is invited to come and buy affordable, beautiful art that benefits this amazing cause. Pieces begin at $15. Viewers will be able to bid on both the work of the students' and the artists. Please note that we can only accept cash at this time. All proceeds will go to The Dorchester Youth Alternative Academy. Donations are also welcome. bu.edu/cfa/
