A photography exhibit in the Exchange District opened on Friday featuring the work of five youth, all new Canadians who took part in the 2010 Winnipeg Folk Festival’s Guest for a Day program.

The “Graffiti Gallery Photography Exhibit: Winnipeg Folk Festival 2010” includes photos taken by the children who captured their first-time impressions at the Winnipeg Folk Festival.

The youth are affiliated with Graffiti Art Programming Inc., a non-profit community youth art center dedicated to the creation of a safe, accepting environment for the development of artistic expression using art as a tool for community, social, economic and individual growth.

The exhibit is open to public viewing during events at the Folk Exchange, 211 Bannatyne Avenue until October 21.
