The DAM Celebrates the Month of Photography

The DAM Celebrates the Month of Photography

Photography-centric gallery openings, lectures, workshops, portfolio reviews, parties, and more will be the talk of town (and region) starting this Sunday, March 1 with the kickoff of the Month of Photography Denver (MoP).

MoP is a biennial celebration of fine art photography with hundreds of collaborative public events throughout Denver and the region March and April 2015. A detailed rundown of events can be found here. Our very own Eric Paddock, curator of photography and Micah Messenheimer, curatorial assistant of photography, will review local and national photographer portfolios and offer their expert knowledge on the genre. Paddock also will be speaking at the CU Center for Bioethics and Humanities on March 5. The DAM is loaning work for their Month of Photography exhibition.

The DAM is excited to be a part of this community-wide celebration of fine art photography and will open a new photography exhibition, Barbara Bosworth: Quiet Wonder on March 13. Bosworth is most famous for photographing landscape, nature and things not seen at first glance. Read Messenheimer's Q&A with her and don’t miss the chance to hear from Bosworth in person on March 13 during the Month of Photography lecture: Barbara Bosworth.
