This exhibit celebrates the youth of downtown Newport News. The idea is to support, motivate, and stimulate the minds of our children by displaying stunning, dramatic images depicting them in what can be their future careers. These images are based on personal interviews with children. In addition to portraiture , the exhibit will also feature multimedia pieces, sculptural elements, and short autobiographies of our community’s youth discussing their future plans. This is the first time this exhibit has been curated but we hope that it will continue to be shown in more cities in the future!
