Inspired by the International Tennis Hall of Fame’s Breaking the Barriers exhibit, the United States Tennis Association Colorado partnered with the Denver Public Library to display their successful three-part portrait series in the Gates Reading Room on Level 5 of the Central Library. The portraits will be on exhibit from October through December, 2015.
Photographer Barry Gutierrez
The portraits were produced by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Barry Gutierrez who served on the Rocky Mountain News Staff for 10 years. You can view Barry "Bear" Gutierrez's other works at his website, www.barrygutierrez.com. Several of Gutierrez's photographs from the Rocky Mountain News were recently added to the Western History department's digital collection and can be found by searching for Barry Gutierrez.
