The community Via serves is overflowing with people taking amazing journeys through life. Each is addressing mobility challenges in unique ways. Explore twenty five of these beautiful journeys in this powerful photo exhibit. The spirit and rich sense of who each person is – beyond their mental or physical challenges - is captured in photo-portraits taken by featured New York portrait artist Sophie Klafter and Denver-based fine art wedding/life events photographer Rachel Gomez.
Why 25 Stories? This exhibit is a tribute to Via’s Executive Director, Lenna Kottke, who is retiring this fall. Via is highlighting one story for every one of Ms. Kottke’s years of visionary leadership. Under her guidance, Via’s grown from a small nonprofit called Special Transit, to Via Mobility Services, northern Colorado’s leader in mobility options.
