Press release

Guilford Art Center will present the exhibition Built: Architects Taking Pictures, May 29 through July 24 in the Center's Mill Gallery.

This group exhibition presents photographs by architects, selected by guest curator Roberto Espejo, who teaches photography at the Yale School of Architecture. These photos do not necessarily take architecture as their subject, explains Espejo; rather, they demonstrate the range of ways architects perceive their surroundings through the camera's lens, and present their images as art. Built will include works by nearly 50 architects, many of whom work locally, as well as many from around the world who are living and practicing in the Connecticut shoreline area. "We are from everywhere but practicing here," says Espejo.

The opening reception for Built will take place Friday, May 29, 5—7 p.m.; it is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday noon to 4 p.m.

A closing reception on Fri., July 24, 5—7 p.m. will feature a Cuban lechon asado (pig roast) and salsa music. Cost is $25/per person at the door, with proceeds benefiting Guilford Art Center.
