Tom Mohr Photo Exhib
Colfax Branch Library
Saturday, Jul. 1 (During regular library hours)
Why did Tom Mohr move to Colfax? That was the question everyone wanted to know, so last March, Mohr responded with a photo exhibit at the Center at Colfax Library called “Why I moved to Colfax.” 
Because that exhibit was so popular, Mohr has updated and expanded it with, “Why I moved to Colfax, Chapter II.” This new exhibit features updated landscape panoramas and images from the McNeilly Cattle Roundup. The exhibit runs from June 12-August 4th at The Center.


We'll also celebrate with a COMMUNITY RECEPTION on Weds, July 19 from 5-7 pm at The Center at Colfax Library. Wine, beer and appetizers will be served.

Inspired by the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Tom Mohr, a long time artist and photographer altered his life’s course and began traveling extensively, photographing the new locations and people he met.
