New Year’s Dragon (2000)

Francisco Middle School; Project conceived and led by Rene Yung (; The students of Francisco Middle School and the participants of the On Lok Senior Center under the direction of artist teacher Rene Yung created ten feet long dragon from collaged materials which was finished in time to honor the Chinese New Year. In the course of planning and working together at the senior center, which was walking distance from the school, these two disparate populations came to know one another fellow artists and as people. The Dragon was placed in the lobby of Francisco Middle School and the seniors came for the opening celebration for exhibition.
