It’s official; our world has become inundated with instruments of intrusion, invention, interaction, and instant gratification that have changed the way that we interpret our environment. This i‐volution has affected photographers as much as anybody, giving us more ways to see, capture, and share the images that surround us. iWorld invites you to respond to the “i‐zation” of our nation with your best interpretation, inspiration, innovation, or illustration of the world that you see.

About the Refuseniks
On June 15, 1970, twelve citizens of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics purchased every ticket on a flight from Leningrad to Priozersk. Claiming that they were traveling to a wedding, they prepared to board the ten-seater Antonov An-2. Their true objective was to hijack the plane, fly to Sweden and leave their homeland.
Before they boarded the place at Leningrad’s Smolny airfield, government authorities arrested them.
Two displays at the Central Library highlight the art of Charley Harper and Native American artifacts and documents.
An eye-catching display of posters from the Federal Documents collection are featured behind the new Information Desk in Schlessman Hall at the Central Library. These posters highlight the art of Charley Harper, American Modernist (1922-2007). Harper was commissioned to illustrate a series of ten posters for the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, each showcasing one national park, from Glacier Bay, Alaska to the Atlantic Barrier Islands.

Recollection 2010 is a selection of more than 60 works from the 600-print collection of the Colorado Photographic Arts Center. Collectively the exhibition presents a remarkable 20th century survey of people and places. Most works in the show are vintage gelatin silver prints.
The Rocky Mountain Wa Shonaji Quilt Guild was formed in February 1994 by five African American women who were interested in perpetuating the heritage of quilting and promoting fellowship among those in quilting. The Guild is committed to supporting and educating the community. To this end, the Guild offers exhibits, quilting classes, lectures and quilt documentation through its various programs during the year. The name Wa Shonaji comes from the Swahili language and means literally “people who sew.”
