A child-inspired photography exhibit opens Friday in downtown Oklahoma City.
Works for the "Dear Mr. President" exhibit, on display at the Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library, were shot by acclaimed Oklahoma City photographer M.J. Alexander, an artist known for her vivid and revealing portraiture.
For the exhibit, children shared advice for President-elect Barack Obama, inspiring Alexander to capture the children's youthful and often humorous insight and wisdom.
Alexander's photographs of elders were recently showcased in "The Centenarians" exhibit, which was displayed at several state museums and galleries, including Oklahoma City's Edward L. Gaylord-Boone Pickens Oklahoma Heritage Center and the International Photography Hall of Fame.
The exhibit is on display at the library, 300 Park Ave., through Jan. 29, 2009. A opening reception will be held 2-4 p.m. Jan 10, 2009.
Admission is free. For more information, call 231-8650.
