Colorado College student Sarah Kelsey worked with Jessica Hunter-Larsen, curator of the IDEA space, and a fellow student, Jeffrey Moore, to curate an exhibit of one-time CC Professor Robert Adams’ photographs documenting the West’s changing landscape. Born in New Jersey in 1937, Adams spent part of his childhood in Denver, only returning to Colorado in 1965. The Colorado of his childhood had been replaced by the changing western landscape in the 1970’s. The interactions between people and the land around them fascinated him and became his subject as he captured the creeping urbanization of the West.

Selections from four of Adams’ Southwestern, Missouri-West, Summer Nights, and Prairies series are on display and the exhibit reopens tomorrow, May 22, 2013 at the Colorado College I.D.E.A. Space. Click HERE for complete information.
