Literary Giants is an itinerant art exhibit that launched August 1st, 2015 at The Open Media Foundation in Denver and will travel for one year making one-month stops at Public Schools and Public Libraries in Colorado. The exhibit will show portraits of a selection of literary giants of the world from Cervantes to Hemingway in an attempt to create a friendly approach to history, literature and reading through art.
This exhibit will feature artists from the local community showcasing work that explores both the intersection of “race” and the connectedness of people as it overlaps and illustrates our shared humanity. We use the word “race” to describe color, ethnicity, and culture, when in reality it’s our shared humanity that unites us as one.
Photographer Kim Allen documented Denver's Lower Downtown from 1983 to 1995. His images chronicle Denver with one foot in history, stepping into a new era. The powerful photographs illustrate our essential foundation and our respect of heritage. We value these views as part of a great sum. These prints are part of us and are moments to celebrate and appreciate.
