Marking a year post-flood in Colorado, The Dairy Center for the Arts is exhibiting 33 black-and-white and color photographs captured by photographers who live and work on the Front Range. In FLOOD: A Thousand Year Event, unmitigated contrasts are presented: Destruction and rebirth; restoration after loss; calamity and, oddly, the center's Curator of Visual Art and Education, Mary Horrocks notes, beauty.
More than a month after floodwater soaked the state, washing out roads and bridges, state and local crews are rushing to get those roads reopened before the winter. Many mountain roads were hit hardest, with North Cedar Brook Road in Pinewood Hills one of many on the list.
Since 2007, the photographic project Extreme Ice Survey has captured the retreat of glaciers across the world from Greenland to Alaska. The still and time-lapse images are a remarkably vivid reminder of how climate change impacts nature. The man behind EIS, James Balog, will speak tonight and tomorrow night at Colorado State University about his work.
