Call For Entries: Traveling Route 40 Photo Show


     CALL FOR ENTRIES - Traveling Route 40 - Celebrating the Character of Colfax Avenue: In conjunction with the 2013 Month of Photography Denver (in March), 40 West Arts and its Colfax Partners 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 all things quintessentially Colfax, across the whole corridor.  Photos need not be recent - we welcome historical images as well. Deadline for entry is February 2, 2013.
     This juried exhibition will be on display throughout March and April 2013 for a two-month long, multi-location traveling show.  The show will kickoff at 40 West Gallery at 1560 Teller from March 1-16. Thereafter, a "traveling" portion of the show will visit additional locations in the Colfax corridor, including Denver's West Colfax BID (Sheridan-Federal), FAX Denver (Colorado-Yosemite area), Colfax on the Hill (York-Colorado area), Aurora Arts District (Clinton-Florence), Upper Colfax (Grant-Columbine area) and east Golden. We'll have more details including dates and times for the additional venues very soon.
