Helikon Gallery Opening Reception Tomorrow, April 18, 2014

OPENING TOMORROWTomorrow, April 18th is another opening of the Kickstarter-funded show "Breaking Free," the exhibit of photography by Shoot Cameras Not Guns students. The photographers are journalists and activists documenting the life in Burma as well as the border regions of Thailand. 
The show had a great opening at the Posner Center for International Development with an interactive opening utilizing the building's many whiteboard and chalkboard walls. Viewers got to answer questions posed by the photographers, and those answers and reactions will be sent back to the photographers! View photos of the opening here.
The Helikon Gallery opening reception tomorrow is from 6pm-10pm at 3675 Wynkoop Street in Denver, Colorado.
