Video: How art changed one Sunset student’s life

Piece 24 is part of artist Karen Blessen’s 29 Pieces project, which has headquarters on Jefferson Boulevard.

We wrote a story in August about Piece 24, which gives internships to Oak Cliff high school students who are working on a totem, “Piece 24,” which is part of Blessen’s larger project, aimed at bringing peace to the world through art.
