The Youth Art Re-Imagining Community Project presents a series of banners created by local high school students to promote equity and social change. The Youth Art Re-Imagining Community Program—a partnership between the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services and Police Department, and George Mason University School of Art—represents a unique intersection of youth art and social change established to address social and racial inequities in youth opportunity.

The Youth Art Re-Imagining Community Project exhibition will be on view by appointment from October 8-October 13.

Olly Olly wants to nourish the body and the community as well. They will be collecting healthy non-perishable food items for Britepaths, which provides short-term emergency food assistance to Fairfax County area residents who are in crisis. They encourage you to bring a healthy non-perishable food item to donate. Britepaths is most in need of cooking oil, brown rice, dried beans, canned fruit in its own juices, and pasta sauce.
