Imagination knows no age

Joan Mir exhibition focuses on artist’s accelerating creativity late in life

By Elizabeth Miller

At an age when surrealist painter Joan Miró might have considered retirement, or at least allowing age to excise the demands on his speed and productivity it seems to necessitate for most of us, he didn’t back off or slow down.

Where’s the heat?

Global warming may have slowed, but that doesn’t make it any less real

By Travis Metcalfe

According to a report issued by NASA and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) earlier this year, 2014 was the warmest year on record, and the top 10 hottest years have all occurred since 1998.

Adventure photographer Celin Serbo on the journey to holding a most-coveted job

By Mary Reed

For photographers, as for anglers, there’s always that one that got away. Rock climbing guide turned professional photographer and filmmaker Celin Serbo remembers such a shot vividly. It took place years ago on a guiding expedition to Ecuador. He was belaying clients up a headwall on the Cayambe volcano. It was early morning and the sun was just beginning to rise.

Forward Food Summit tackles food insecurity in Boulder County and its intersection with race

By Matt Cortina

We waste a lot of food in Boulder County. At the same time, some people go to sleep hungry here. And those people tend to fall into racial and economic minorities. That was the problem up for discussion at the second annual Forward Food Summit, which took place this past weekend, April 18 and 19. It brought together food insecurity organizations and experts to address how to solve those issues of food waste and food insecurity, and to figure out why they often intersect with racial issues.

Front Range Film Festival brings Colorado filmmakers from camera to screen

By Amanda Moutinho

Culture is homegrown in Boulder County — from breweries to art. In her latest documentary, Colorado Hopped — Bine to Brew, Longmont filmmaker Barbara Hau paired the two. A few years ago, while helping a friend harvest a hops field in Wisconsin, Hau became interested in local hop farming operations. Then, when Hau noticed a few fields popping up around Longmont, she knew she wanted to make a film about the farmers, who were selling their crops to breweries around town.

Making a day of meals from only tree products for Arbor Day

By Matt Cortina

Could you make three square meals and a dessert out of only ingredients that come from trees? That’s the ridiculous question I posed to myself in honor of Arbor Day, which saunters through on April 24 in the unfortunate shadow of that fat cat Earth Day.

Sharing the economy

By Dave Anderson

About one in three American workers are temps, according to a recent report from the Freelancers Union and a temp agency called ElanceoDesk Inc. That’s 53 million people (or 34 percent of the workforce). That’s sort of an update of a comprehensive U.S. Government Accountability Office report in 2006 that found that 31 percent were temps.
