To celebrate the 2023 Month of Photography Denver festival and the Colorado Photographic Arts Center’s 60th Anniversary, we invite you to take a journey through the history of photographic art with a special exhibition of works from CPAC’s Permanent Collection.
A cultural treasure, the collection houses more than 800 prints collected over six decades, donated by regional and national artists working from the mid-1800s to today.
Looking Back, Moving Forward offers a unique opportunity to see pieces from the collection for the first time in decades. The exhibit highlights 45 images spanning a range of genres, approaches, and techniques, honoring CPAC’s past while looking to the future as the organization celebrates its 60th year.
Johnston’s curation combines pivotal works from the 20th century with national and regional works that demonstrate the breadth of the medium. The exhibit will include photographs by well-known masters like Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, and Judy Dater, as well as Colorado artists such as Ewing Stiffler and Hal Gould, and contemporary photographers such as Greer Muldowney, Zora Murff and the collaborative duo Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman.
