Awkward Family Photos

There’s one hanging in almost every home: the poorly posed, overly matchy, probably cross-eyed awkward family photo. Now Mike Bender and Doug Chernack, who first shared their personal collection of uncomfortable snapshots on their aptly titled website,, are bringing more than 200 peculiar portraits—complete with “behind the awkwardness” stories from the families pictured—to Denver. The exhibit will make you feel right at home with its cozy floral pattern couches and ceramic cats, and you can even take your own awkward family photo in the DIY photo studio. Mon-Sun 10 a.m-5 p.m.
