Several Riverside teens involved in a summer library project to create views of their hometown through a lens will see their works exhibited at the University of California Riverside's California Museum of Photography, 3824 Main Street, from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday.

The exhibit will be held during First Thursday ArtsWalk, in which downtown art venues, such as galleries and museums, are open later to encourage more visitors.

The teens' works will be part of a showcase celebrating the stories, images and graphic design work of teens in the Inland Empire. 

The summer course at the library, "How I See It," is a joint project of the Riverside Public Library's Teen Space Program, the UCR California Museum of Photography and the Inlandia Institute.  The project involved photo excursions throughout downtown and digital graphic manipulation. 

"How I see It" is a program of the California Council for the Humanities' California Stories: How I See It campaign conducted in partnership with Califa.  It is supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.  For more information on the Council and the California Stories Initiative, visit www.californiastories.org.
