MISSOULA, Mont. — From June 27th to August 4th Liquid Planet in downtown Missoula will host the International “Birth of Coffee” Exhibition. Based on the book of the same name by Daniel and Linda Lorenzetti (ISBN: 978-0609606780), the photography exhibit chronicles the life of coffee from seed to cup. David and Linda Lorenzetti travelled over a quarter of a million miles to five different continents in a span of five years to trace the birth and life of the 2nd most globally traded commodity (second only to oil). The duo-toned silver gelatin photographs specially processed with actual coffee celebrate the distant landscapes, cultural vitality and individual labor that infuse the coffee trade.
The exhibition seeks to bring the contributions of coffee farmers around the world into public view to facilitate a better appreciation of the world-wide morning brew. Boston, Washington DC, Las Vegas and Boston have been previous destinations, but this is the first time the exhibit has been brought to the Northwest, and only the second time it’s been displayed in the Western United States.
The exhibition opening presentation is Friday June 27th at 7:00 p.m. with the book signing the following day at 1:00 p.m. Learn more about the exhibition and project at http://www.birthofcoffee.com.
