Stockton, Merced students to have art on display at governor’s office

Students from Fathers and Families of San Joaquin in Stockton, We’Ced in Merced and Brown Issues in Sacramento will have their artwork displayed at the State Capitol.

Youth from the three organizations will gather outside the governor’s office on June 6 to present their pieces, which are interpretations of the theme “We Are All Californians.” Each piece is part of a puzzle. When joined, the artwork will create the bear from the California state flag.

The art program is designed to bring awareness to affordable healthcare for residents of the state.

Pieces will be presented at 1 p.m., and will remain on display for the following week
