Month of Photography Denver (MOP) is a biennial festival that celebrates the photographic medium through public exhibitions, events and programs at more than 75 museums, galleries, and other participating spaces across the Denver Metro region. The next festival will take place March 1-30, 2021.
The festival creates exhibition opportunities for hundreds of working artists, generates publicity for arts organizations across the region, and showcase outstanding photography from around the world for everyone to enjoy.
For working photographers, a major highlight of the festival is the MOP Portfolio Reviews. Over two days, up to 72 registered photographers spend dedicated time with 30 leading curators, gallery owners, editors, and other professionals in the national photography community. Whether you’re seeking exposure for a finished portfolio or feedback on a project in progress, MoP Reviews can help you advance your practice and career. In previous years, numerous photographers have left with opportunities to exhibit, publish, and sell their work. The 2021 reviews are scheduled to take place March 20-21 at The Curtis Hotel.
The 2021 Month of Photography Denver Festival is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, the Bonfils Stanton Foundation, Colorado Creative Industries, Denver Arts & Venues, the Morgan Family Foundation.
