Denver Botanic Gardens says
This lecture is part of our annual Bonfils-Stanton Foundation series. The 2017 theme is water!

Learn about the Colorado River in a way you’ve never imagined! Kathleen Velo Studio discusses her project “Water Flow: Under the Colorado River,” a series of color photograms created under the surface of the water in the Colorado river. This photographic project spans the entire river, from the headwaters in northern Colorado through five states into Mexico, where the river ends short of the Sea of Cortez. Hear about the adventures and challenges of creating these beautiful photograms, which explore water quality concerns and the transience of one of the most important rivers in the United States.

Velo is a photographic artist who uses non-traditional media and cameraless processes to explore water quality and environmental issues. She is the recipient of various grants and awards including artist project grants from the Fulbright commission, the United States Department of State and the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
