First Friday Reception for Two Photo Exhibitions
"Proud" by Garrett Chappell, and
"(In)visible"; photos from the Sonder Collection
The First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, Boulder
1128 Pine St., Boulder, CO 80302 303-442-1787 www.firstcong.net
Friday, October 6, - 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
"Proud" is a photographic installation inspired by the strength, diversity, and beauty of the LGBTQ Community. The project began after the attack at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, FL on June 12, 2016.

Garrett Chappell, a member of First Congregational, and a local graphic designer and photographer. Taking portraits of LGBTQ folks wearing outfits or looks heavily inspired by a color from the rainbow flag, which will eventually be made into a large scale installation in the church to celebrate the 30th anniversary of First Congregational becoming the first church in Colorado to become open and affirming.

The Sonder Collection of photographs featuring (In)visible Boulder, is a collaboration between Boulder County and 7 local nonprofits. Led by local creative studio, One Thousand Design, the project is igniting a community conversation about stigma, stereotype, and disparity in our community. It features the stories of our most marginalized neighbors – the homeless, working poor, transgender, immigrants and others. Over 50 individuals across Boulder County participated in the project.

Come see these two great photo exhibits!
If you can't make it to the Opening Reception on 10/6, stop by First Congregational Church during the day and take a look.
