On March 28, Deputy Chief of Mission Steven Kashkett opened the exhibition “America Is Not Just Burgers” at the American Center displaying artwork by students from Obrnice Primary School.
The students created pictures of U.S. landscapes, cities and nature under the guidance of Hana Matuštíková, Obrnice Art Teacher. The Obrnice Primary School is significant for its excellent Roma integration program.
The town of Obrnice is located about 2 miles from Most and Roma constitute 40 percent of the total population.
The project originated from joint cooperation with Obrnice Mayor Drahomíra Miklošová and the U.S. Embassy in Prague. Our shared goal was to educate children about the U.S. in a creative and inspirational way.
