Throughout the month of March 2021, Month of Photography Denver invites you to explore the art of photography through dozens of exhibitions, talks, tours, and events at participating spaces throughout the city and beyond. Founded in 2004 by Denver-based artist Mark Sink, the festival has become an important platform for photography in the Rocky Mountain region, with works by more than 500 local, national, and international artists on display.
The festival is presented by the Colorado Photographic Arts Center (CPAC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the understanding and appreciation of excellent photography through year-round exhibitions, education, and community outreach. CPAC is the headquarters of the festival and is located at 1070 Bannock St. in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District.
Participating spaces include museums, galleries, universities, community art centers, nonprofit organizations, public spaces, businesses and other venues. Most events will take place in the Denver Metro area, with a smaller number of events outside the city in Boulder, Longmont, Fort Collins, and other areas.
For working photographers and artists, the Month of Photography Portfolio Reviews are a highlight of the festival. During this two-day event, up to 72 photographers will have an opportunity to present their work to 30 of the most important people in the national photography community, including museum curators, gallery owners, editors, publishers, nonprofit directors, and other leading professionals.
Participating photographers are invited to share their portfolios at the Portfolio Walk, a public event at the McNichols Building at Civic Center Park that attracts collectors, reviewers, and hundreds of visitors.
Month of Photography Denver is committed to an open, inclusive, accessible, and supportive environment for all of its patrons, staff, and volunteers. Visitors in need of accommodations are invited to contact us at email@example.com in advance of your visit so we can arrange accommodations to support your experience.
