EDMOND, Okla. (AP) - A project depicting more than 1,000 youths in more than 200 juvenile detention centers across the country is going to be on display this month at the University of Central Oklahoma.

Titled “Juvenile in Justice,” the project features Tulsa’s Detention Center and the now-closed Lloyd E. Rader Diagnostic and Evaluation Center in Sand Springs.

University of California, Santa Barbara professor Richard Ross has spent more than seven years photographing the youths for the project.

It will be on display throughout the Communications Building from Feb. 12 to March 12. A reception and lecture with Ross will also be held on Feb. 12 starting at 6 p.m.
