Healing Art in Oakland

Rock Paper Scissors is hosting an amazing exhibit of 125 wooden figurines representing each of Oakland's 125 homicide victims last year, painted by people in the community. On display are also portraits of Oakland residents, and letters to the victims. You can write your own letter, too, to victims or their families.

Rock Paper Scissors is on 2278 Telegraph Avenue, at 23rd Street. Go see the art and participate and help heal this disease that hurts the whole community. The show runs until February 28th.
