Wellness Works at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre will showcase art created & donated by 32 Los Angeles based artists. Each one-of-a-kind work of art will incorporate reclaimed materials from the recently demolished automotive/machine shop at Hollywood High School; the future site of a new school-based health center. Wellness Works brings together the combined energies of ART from the ashes (AFTA), Los Angeles Trust for Children’s Health (LA Trust) and California School Health Centers (CSHC). The LA Trust and CSHC support current and emerging school health centers by promoting school wellness, advocating for improved school health policy and helping communities start-up and sustain school health centers. Works of art created by AFTA and participating artists symbolize how students’ lives can be transformed when they have access to healthcare.
