AAPI Heritage Month
As a follow up to the highly successful 2011 Breaking the Barriers exhibit honoring African-American achievements in tennis, USTA Colorado returned in 2014 with Breaking the Barriers 2.0 celebrating local Asian Pacific American tennis pioneers, contributors and rising stars in honor of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
The Portrait Series is tennis art in motion. To play tennis, there is technique, form and skill, which is a form of art in itself.
Former photojournalist and Pulitzer prize-winning local photographer Bear Gutierrez debuted a collection of portraits as a visual journey, inspired by the elements — fire, water, air and earth — with tennis players performing magical feats.
