Level 2

Blair-Caldwell will feature a collection of portraits of local tennis pioneers by Pulitzer Prize winning local photographer, Barry Gutierrez. For the love of the game, the portraits showcase individuals who broke barriers, fought battles and experienced victories in an unassuming way. Their achievements include: the first African-American woman tennis umpire in Colorado, the first African-American to win the Colorado Open singles title, and more. Today, we benefit from the actions of these local heroes; people devoted to expanding tennis in Denver from the indulgence of a privileged few to a dynamically inclusive sporting experience for all its citizens.
