You Are You

     Camp You are You (whose name has been changed to protect the privacy of the participants) offers a temporary safe haven where gender nonconforming children can freely express their interpretations of femininity alongside their parents and siblings. When together, they are supported to be true to their inner nature. They may don wigs, high heels, and gem-encrusted tiaras unburdened by fear of bullying and discrimination.

     This body of work speaks out against intolerance while sharing with the viewer the beautiful spark of these children. I intend for the essay to serve as a guidepost for parents and the general public who struggle with their own uncertainties and prejudices with regard to the fender unique population. This is a place of acceptance. A place which can serve as a model of a society in which the first generation of children able to lead and openly LGBTQ childhood will come of age.

We are very pleased to feature Jonathan Blaustein in the Center’s North Gallery from March 11 – April 30.

Photographer Jonathan Blaustein offers a novel representation of food in a drive-through culture ruled by big budget advertising and low concern for truth – food as it really is. Blaustein’s series The Value of a Dollar removes the glossy packaging and examines edible commodity available for one dollar – ten organic blueberries, seven packages of ramen noodles, forty-eight tea biscuits and a double cheeseburger just to list a few. To illustrate the impact of globalization, the subjects chosen for this project were explicitly sourced in Northern New Mexico, where Blaustein currently resides.

This exhibition is made possible thanks to the generous support of the City of Fort Collins Fort Fund Grant.
