DENVER - In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the United States Tennis Association partnered with the Denver International Airport to showcase the history of Asian tennis in Colorado through the "Breaking the Barriers 2.0" portrait series.
7NEWS Anchor Christine Chang is featured in the Asian Connection Portrait Series shot by Pullitzer prize-winning local photographer, Barry Guitierrez.
The 2014 exhibit is a follow-up to the highly successful 2011 Breaking the Barriers showcase, honoring African-American achievements in tennis.
On his website, Guitierrez said, "The tennis players I photographed weathered cold winds at Red Rocks Park, fought deep waters at a pool in Arvada, stood tall when surrounded by at an Elk Creek fire station, and didn’t shy away from painting their bodies in liquid clay at Gates Tennis Center. But most of all they allowed me to reveal a piece of their soul, and for this I am grateful."
Organizers said after the DIA exhibition, the series will be traveling to various cultural events in Colorado this summer.
