Y/OUR Denver Juried Show



OCTOBER 26 – DECEMBER 31, 2018

About the Exhibition

This online exhibition was created in collaboration with Denver Architecture Foundation (DAF) as part of the Doors Open Denver festival. Y/OUR Denver asked local photographers to find and photograph their favorite areas of Denver. The call was open to all forms of architectural imagery and from photographers of all skill levels. Juror Samantha Johnston, Executive Director of Colorado Photographic Arts Center, curated the following selection out of 205 images. In total, 30 images were selected by 29 photographers. From digital, to photo etching, to the iPhone, Y/OUR Denver showcases the big and small areas of our city.

Y/OUR Denver will be hosted on both the CPAC and DAF websites.

About Denver Architecture Foundation

Founded in 1990, the Denver Architecture Foundation (DAF) continues to champion the deep-rooted connections between architecture, education and community-building through diverse and expanding programs. DAF is a unique organization in the Denver area, fulfilling strong public interest in local architecture and its relevance in shaping Denver’s past, present and future.
