The gallery had its opening reception on West Second Street in Duluth on Friday. Students, from 8 years old to college-aged, present their work. Some pieces have personal meaning.

"Some of the stories are about lost loved ones. Some of the stories are about not being targeted by the tobacco industry, and some of the stories are just about having a voice and making their choice," said Pat McKone with the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest. "There's one talking about a family compared to a tree and not having the tree fall. "There's one about a loss of a loved one on their birthday, so some real powerful stuff."

Organizers hope to keep pursuing awareness through visual mediums.
