USTA Colorado Breaking The Barriers Portrait Series Exhibit

Blog Topics


Really cool!

The ability to conceive and achieve this project was possible through the support and participation of many individuals who participated on the U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) Colorado Breaking the Barriers Community/Business taskforce.

The partnership with the City of Denver agencies over the five-years of this project, enabled USTA Colorado to showcase tennis in non-traditional venues, exposing tennis to boarder audiences. Thanks goes to:
- The Office of Mayor Michael B. Hancock
- Denver International Airport Art & Culture
- Agency for Human Rights & Community Partnerships
- Denver Parks & Recreation
And of course, the Denver Public Library branches... Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library, Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales Library and the phenomenal Jim Kroll and team at the Western History/Genealogy Dept., along with the special events coordinator, the marketing and communications team. Also, a shout out to Will Chan, program administrator.

It has been an amazing journey and honor to tell these stories, working with all of the featured profiles through the creative lens of Barry Gutierrez to create a legacy with these stunning portraits.
