When Front Range communities washed away in last year's torrential rains and subsequent floods, some folks who experienced the disaster firsthand did so with cameras in hand, documenting the stark power of nature as rivers jumped their banks to wreak havoc. A year later, the Dairy Center for the Arts will commemorate the Boulder region's floods with Flood: A Thousand Year Event, curated by Mark Sink and featuring images by seven of those photographers: James Balog, Andrew Beckham, Chris Brown, Charles Forsman, Kevin O'Connell, Richard Van Pelt and Katie Harwood. The show opens tonight with artist talks at 4 p.m. and a reception from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and runs through October 10. Admission is free. Keep reading for images from the exhibit.
