This fabulous piece of artwork by an Nene Ozaki, a high school student from Okayama, Japan was selected but the San Jose Downtown Foundation to grace one of the ‘doors’ of Downtown San Jose. Her explanation of her drawing/collage is that she sometimes feels isolated and when she does, she draws things that she really likes, and that makes her feel better. She wanted the piece to select her own sensibilities and joys in life.

The piece is called “Self confirmed Style.”

Nene will receive a small stipend as will her school.

SJ-Okayama Sister Cities worked with both the SJ Downtown Foundation & Okayama, Japan, and is the very proud sponsor of this door.
