On any given day in the U.S., approximately 70,000 young people are in juvenile detention or correctional facilities. This project by photographer Richard Ross documents the placement and treatment of American juveniles housed by law in facilities that treat, confine, punish, assist and, occasionally, harm them. To date, the project includes photographs and interviews with more than 1,000 juveniles at over 200 facilities in 31 states in the U.S., from detention, correction, and treatment facilities to group homes, police departments, and courtrooms.
Ulrich exhibitions are generously supported by the Ulrich Salon Circle and Museum Alliance.
Gallery hours are 11 a.m-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 1-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; closed Mondays and major/university holidays. Free admission. For more information about the exhibition or the artists, call the Ulrich Museum at (316) 978-3664 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
