Burton Barr Central Library will host the exhibit “Kids in Focus” March 8 - 22, 2013 in Teen Central, located on the fourth floor of 1221 N. Central Ave. The exhibit features photos by 19 seventh graders from Children First Academy, a nonprofit, K-8 public charter school where all the students’ families are at poverty level and 40% of the students are homeless. Organized by photographer Karen Shell, the project teamed students with photographer mentors to create images that document the students’ lives.
