New Photography Exhibit By Cody Brothers Now Open At Springs Preserve

Explore the style and function of Art Deco design in Colorado River water facilities through the stunning black and white pinhole photography of Cody Brothers. These facilities were built by the Federal Government during the Great Depression and employed architects and artists in their design. The 20 photos reveal the unexpected artistry of pivotal water facilities such as the Hoover Dam, Parker Dam, Iron Mountain, and Metropolitan Water District building.

“Shot during my first full visit to the [Hoover] dam, the angel statues serve as a lasting symbol of the grandness of the dam’s construction – much like the Sphinx, to the Pyramids, in Egypt,” said artist Cody Brothers about work entitled Pinhole Angel.

Exhibit on display April 13 – July 23, 2017, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily in the Big Springs Gallery. Free for members or included with paid general admission.

Springs Preserve, 333 S. Valley View Blvd., (Meadows Ln. Between Alta Dr. and U.S. 95)
