Dear Younger Me - Photography Exhibit

Jul 20, 2018 - Aug 25, 2018

Picture Me Here, a storytelling program for refugees and immigrants, will exhibit photography and writing by New Americans that are adjusting to life in Colorado. The artists created postcards addressed to their former selves (before migrating and resettling) to share their experiences and impressions of life in America, what they will enjoy here, what’s challenging, and what they will miss about their home country. Each postcard includes their own photography and writing. The artists are from a variety of countries (Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Brazil, Ukraine, Nigeria and Congo) and they are engaged in a year long creative media and storytelling fellowship run by Picture Me Here.

The exhibit will be up July 20-August 25. Opening reception: July 27, 6-9pm. Fellows will be present to discuss their work and give a brief talk. Picture Me Here partners with Colorado Photographic Arts Center as a fiscal sponsor.
