Special to The Sun

EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma will host California photographer, researcher and University of California, Santa Barbara professor Richard Ross for a reception and lecture on his “Juvenile in Justice” series at 6 p.m. Feb. 12 in Communications Building Room 120. A reception will be held in the foyer outside the room with Ross’ lecture following at 6:30 p.m.

Selections from “Juvenile in Justice” will be on display throughout the Communications Building, including Central’s Woody Gaddis Gallery, from Feb. 12 to March 12. The gallery, located in Room 104 of the Communications Building, is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Ross’ work focuses on the placement and treatment of American juveniles housed in correctional facilities. He has spent more than seven years working on the project, which features photographs of more than 1,000 youths and administrators in more than 200 juvenile detention and commitment facilities in 31 states, including Oklahoma’s Tulsa Detention Center and the now-closed Lloyd E. Rader Diagnostic and Evaluation Center in Sand Springs.
