PORTLAND — Works of art by Falmouth and Yarmouth high school students will be on display this Friday at the Via Agency in the Baxter Building, 619 Congress St., as part of the First Friday Art Walk.

The art was created by students in reaction to the genocide in Darfur.

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Andrews, now president and chief executive officer of United to End Genocide, and members of Maine’s Sudanese community will be on hand for a conversation about the genocide.

Additionally, the Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus directed by Con Fullam will perform a selection of songs. Student musicians will also perform.

The art show begins at 5 p.m. and the discussion will begin at 7:45 p.m.
