Welcome to Powderhorn365! 


Mission

Through the lenses of volunteer photographers, Powderhorn365 tells the daily stories of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood: making people and places visible, documenting history and celebrating life. Powderhorn365 produces a visual, community-written narrative through photo postings, photobooks and exhibits.

Vision

Powderhorn365 provides value to the neighborhood by contributing to public art, inspiring people and connecting the patchwork of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood. Powderhorn365 benefits photographers by spurring creative growth, continuing education, breaking isolation and developing their personal experience of the community. The program serves the neighborhood by creating a platform for the community members to draft their own shared narrative. It serves local youth by documenting where they grew up and providing reasons to stay or come back to the neighborhood. Local businesses and organizations gain visibility through the program and it encourages people to cross cultural barriers.

History

Powderhorn365 began January 1, 2009, thanks to Amy Wurdock and a group of photographers.  The project continued with a new group each year.  We are now a program of Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association, and that partnership has given us the support we need to sustain this project. Our gratitude to PPNA for helping us explore new and exciting ways to celebrate the neighborhood through photography, including photo-wrapped utility boxes along the streets of Powderhorn and neighboring communities. (Click on the PPNA icon on this page for their site.)

Look back at the prior years to get the full spectrum of talent and perspective from 2009 to date. If you want to see the photo full screen, click on it to open.

Photographers

Daily photographers for 2018 include David Pierini, Ben Wells, Kimani Beard, Stephanie Paxton, Jenn Fisher, and Edith Carlson. We look forward to viewing what this group sees in Powderhorn.

If you have a photo you want to suggest for this site, if you have a comment about a photo, or if you'd like to be a guest photographer, we'd like to hear from you.  Weekly photographers are selected in December of each year.  You may contact PPNA at grace@ppna.org.

"Thank You and Goodnight"

I have had loads of fun working on this collaborative project. One of the things that intrigued me most was the patience it would take to discover the complete project. Fittingly, this frame is a bookend for the series; a color shot from the same place as the first image, 364 days and 4 hours later.

"New Year's Eve Stroll"
Alisa & Martin came down to Powderhorn Lake for a stroll on the ice a little after dusk on New Year's Eve. The south side of the lake was cleared of snow earlier in the day for ice skating and with the feels like temp at about -25, they pretty much had the lake all to themselves.
