the fair to life each year.

POWDERHORN365

WHAT WE'RE DOING

Community driven narrative of life in pictures captured through the lens of volunteer photographers for nearly a decade. Each year, seven core photographers and nearly a 100 guest photographers weave together a powerful view of our community.

WHY

The vision, passion, and photography skills of long-time resident Amy Wurdock gave rise to Powderhorn 365 as a way for the community to reclaim and reflect the community from their perspective. This remains the heart of the program.
