JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It was a celebration of architecture in downtown Jackson Thursday night.

American Institute of Architects or A.I.A. of Mississippi held its opening reception for the Mississippi Celebrates Architecture Exhibit.

Students from kindergarten to 12th grade won awards for their photography of various architecture and their work was on display.

"Yes, I do plan to be a photographer when I grow up because it's a lot of fun for me and art is, I just love art," said Davis Magnet 5th grader, Wayne Gayle.

"I like to because you can take pictures of cool stuff and you get to, you can do it all sorts of ways," said Bryan Grove from Clinton Christian Academy.

This was the second year for the event and the exhibit is in the Jackson Municipal Art Gallery on State Street.

There was also photography by professionals on display.
