Rick Wicker gained an interest in photography starting in high school when he worked on the yearbook and newspaper staff as a photographer. Rick started at the Colorado Institute of Art shortly thereafter, and while in school, he began working on projects with the Museum. After 11 years at the Museum, Rick left and worked with renowned Colorado photographer John Fielder, managing his art gallery in Cherry Creek Shopping Center and later in the Santa Fe Arts District. He also spent some time managing Fielder’s publishing house. In 2008 Rick returned to the Museum, continuing his greatest passion for photographing collections material from all of the disciplines. He has also had the opportunity to travel both domestically and internationally for the Museum. Through photography, Rick says he is able to help share the Museum’s story to a vast audience.
