“America Is Not Just Burgers” is a collection of artwork by 12 to 15-year-old children from Obrnice Primary School.

Located about 2 miles from Most, the Obrnice Primary School is significant for its excellent Roma integration program, which is of great need in this town of 2500 inhabitants where the Roma constitute 40 percent of the total population.

The exhibition was put together under the artistic baton of Hana Matuštíková, Obrnice Art Teacher. The project originated from joint cooperation of Obrnice Mayor Drahomíra Miklošová and the U.S. Embassy in Prague and its main goal was to educate children about the U.S. in a creative and inspirational way.
