The West Colfax BID, 40 West Arts and other Colfax partner districts from Aurora to Lakewood invite photographers to use their artist’s eye to capture the ever-changing character of Colfax Avenue. Whether characterized as the longest continuous main street in the United States or the Gateway to the Rockies, Colfax Avenue has been at the epicenter of entrepreneurial and cultural activities in the metro area for more than 150 years. From its beginnings as a dusty road, to its heyday of mansions for the Denver elite, to the neon-celebration of the 1950s car culture, there’s nothing quite like Colfax. We are asking photographers to celebrate not only its rich history, but also its present personality, and its possibilities for the future in an event that’s all things quintessentially Colfax. Photos need not be recent – we welcome historical images as well. Deadline for entry is February 2, 2013. Click here for more information on how to enter.
This juried exhibition will be on display at the McNichols Building and 40 West Arts and travel to additional locations along the Colfax corridor, including the West Colfax BID through March and April. Details to come!
