Award-winning artist Richard Ross will visit Bloomington, Indiana April 5-6, 2018, for a two-day interdisciplinary arts program that highlights his nationally acclaimed, ongoing photographic series, "Juvenile in Justice."

A unique source for images of the American juvenile justice system, the "Juvenile in Justice" series depicts young people housed in facilities that treat, confine, punish, and, occasionally, harm them. Ross collaborated with juvenile justice stakeholders to produce images that serve as a catalyst for change. More info at
