22 Aug CPAC has moved to Denver
CPAC has moved to 1513 Boulder Street in Denver. For many people there’s going to be a sense of deja vu to that statement, because CPAC ran a dynamic gallery at that same location from 1999-2005. It’s good to be back!
Our determination to serve the photo community remains just as strong as when our collective founders – Hal Gould, Gene Lange, Marsea Wynne, and others – first recognized that photographers in the Western region lacked a place to reach their audience and develop their craft and careers.
Remarkably, that need in large part still exists – perhaps even more so given the explosive growth of the medium and consequent awareness of image-making. With this in mind, we are developing a three-year Strategic Plan supported by a generous donation from Sue Cannon. The plan will refine our vision for growth, services, and relocation to a permanent multi-purpose center in Denver in 2015.
To firmly locate the elephant in the room, this means, of course, that 1513 Boulder Street is an interim location – a temporary facility made possible by our board member Carol Keller. We are moving now because you, our supporters, have made it clear that we need be in a more central, accessible, and vibrant location.
I am personally excited to bring CPAC back to central Denver, and I urge you to support us in any way you can. That can be as simple as including us on your “go to” route the next time you are planning a gallery day out, visit to REI, or ramble along the many bike paths, bars and restaurants that surround our Boulder Street location. Let us know your thoughts, and above all, stay in touch. On behalf of CPAC’s board and staff, I invite you to join us as we enter yet another exciting period in our 50-year history.
Rupert Jenkins, CPAC Director
