CU Art Museum
Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum

March 2 - July 15, 2017
Opening: March 2nd, 5-7pm

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

What does home mean to you? We invite you to respond to that question while celebrating this exhibition of 20th century photography from our collection. The night’s activities include creatively responding to images and prompts in our FlexSpace gallery, taking “family” photos, and the culmination of our social media call for your photos of “home.” Experience Home and enjoy refreshments and an inspired playlist spun live by Radio 1190 KVCU.
