“Peripheral Vision” photography exhibit by Carlos Arzaga

For this selection of photos the deliberate intention to use the concept of “peripheral vision” as a title and to apply it in a social context is a decision made based on what defines the margins of what is visually evident but regularly ignored. These photographs present daily images of city streets in Mexico as well as in other Latin American countries. What is evident and constant in these images is the presence of mostly women, without a defined age range, being involved in what we know eloquently as the “informal sector” of the economy, a term that regularly applies to sectors of the population with limited resources in developing countries


When: August 10 through October 12, 2017

Where: The Mexican Cultural Center Gallery, 5350 Leetsdale Drive, Suite 200W (second floor), Denver, CO 80246

“Faces of GW”- Students photography exhibit


“Faces of GW”is a collaborate photography project that was inspired and designed after National Geographic’s Faces of America article. Through this exhibit, we explore the stories of the faces that walk through the halls of our high school every day. Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of school and work, we do not get to connect with each other in a meaningful way. Photographers were asked to photograph, and connect with a student or teacher at this school that they have never spoken to. The purpose of this exercise is to connect with each other as a GW community through our experiences, personal struggles and common struggles as we navigate the world around us. Ultimately, student or teacher, athlete or artist, we are human and it is this human-ess that drives our One George community to the core.
