Personal Histories of Photography Exhibit

This exhibition showcases two community engagement projects celebrating the intimate relationship between photographs and memory. Conceived by Prof. Roddy MacInnes, the projects brought together DU students and residents of Clermont Park Retirement Community to build relationships, share stories, and capture memories through visual, oral and textual practices. By way of creative exchanges, photography helped bridge the generational gap and unlocked the door to meaningful experiences for all participants.

Blazing the Trail: Colorado Jewish History

Ongoing | Lower Level, near Quiet Study Area (AAC 180)

The Gold Rush of 1859 brought the first Jewish Settlers to Colorado in search of opportunity and adventure. The unpredictability of gold mining and a growing demand for supplies encouraged many of the early Jewish pioneers to open small businesses. By the 1870s, Jewish families helped to establish stable communities in Denver as well as Leadville, Central City, Trinidad, and Pueblo as part of Colorado's development. This exhibit traces the central role of Denver's early Jews in the city's growth and prosperity.
