MoP - Month of Photography Denver is a biennial celebration of fine art photography with hundreds of collaborative public events throughout Denver and the region March and April 2017. We are joining multiple museums galleries and schools surrounding fine art photography creating an exciting artistic and educational event for the city of Denver and the region.
Americana is commonly associated with nostalgia, optimism, and a rose-tinted view of the past. You may recall images of baseball, apple pie, or the local soda fountain. But what does Americana look like today--and what does it mean to you?
More than 200 artists responded to this question, submitting over 900 photographs to Juror Darren Ching, Director and Co-owner of KlompChing gallery in New York.
"Though the exhibit is laced with a number of photographs which could be interpreted as a cynical view of America—my intention was to present a country that is diverse, resilient and distinct," he said. Darren ultimately selected 26 artistsfor the exhibition, which will be on view at CPAC September 22 - November 4.
