The Silhouette Project: Newcomers by Dona Laurita

The Colorado Photographic Arts Center presents The Silhouette Project: Newcomers, a recurring photographic series documenting the stories of underserved and vulnerable youth refugee populations by Dona Laurita, opening May 10, 2024. Newcomers have lost their sense of time and place, missing out on months or years of education, arts, sports, friendships, and many more things that make up a normal life. This exhibition eloquently captures the resilience and humanity of these young immigrants through powerful blacked-out portraits and narratives, offering a profound glimpse into their experiences and bringing an underrepresented community out of the shadows with transformative art.

Friday, May 10 (6 - 9 pm) – Opening Reception
Saturday, May 11 (11 am) – "Out of the Shadows": Newcomers illuminate their immigration journeys to America with Dona Laurita

The exhibition, opening reception, and special programming are free to attend.
