Bombarded by the media’s unrelenting coverage of a world at war, it must be a stretch for young people to imagine a world, even a neighborhood, at peace. The public will have an opportunity to “picture peace” through the eyes and minds of twelve Minneapolis youth in a documentary photography exhibit opening June 5 at Minneapolis City Hall
Picturing Peace, created through a collaboration between the Minneapolis Department of Health and Family Support and The Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District explores young people’s reflections and hopes for peace and safety in their communities.
Kickoff for the exhibit is Tuesday, June 5, 5:00-6:00 p.m. The gallery exhibit will be opened, young artists will be present and refreshments served. The exhibit is in the City Hall Rotunda Gallery, 350 South 5th Street, Minneapolis.
Picturing Peace is free and open to the public June 5-18. RSVP for the opening event requested at http://picturingpeace.eventbrite.com or by calling 612 673 2729.
