Birds of a feather

Aerial artists flock to Boulder

By Michael Callahan
Boulderites love to exert themselves, and we appreciate the dedication it takes to become a world-class talent at something. So it should come as no surprise that Boulder is practically ground zero for an activity that combines the strength of a rock climber with the grace of gymnast.

Written with a needle

Quilter mixes art and function, tradition and innovation

By Elizabeth Miller
As Kerry Larkin has traveled the country with her handmade quilts, she’s discovered that people in Manhattan and Washington, D.C. — just like people in rural Pennsylvania where she grew up and her current home in Colorado — have stories about quilts.

When cultures collide

Chief Niwot’s spirit lives on

New community project draws from historic Arapaho tribe leader to inspire change

By Sebastian Murdock
The story of the city of Boulder has a sordid side. It starts with the first white men settling onto the land, a Native American Arapaho peace chief seeking coexistence with the new inhabitants, and his eventual death during the Sand Creek Massacre at the hands of the white men he had hoped to make peace with.

Uncomfortable cuisine

Viviane Le Courtois’ ‘Edible?’ takes an uncomfortable look at food

By David Accomazzo
Deep in the back room of the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA), an enormous Cheeto, roughly four feet long and made up of thousands of real Cheetos, dangles from the ceiling like dead flesh in a meat locker. Up close, the individual Cheetos have a sticky glaze on them, as if someone put them in her mouth in order to stick them on the form beneath, and loud crunching noises coming from speakers inside the oversized snack echo throughout the room.

Bolder Boulder and beer bongs

Annual race lives up to the hype

By Adam Perry
Around 9:05 a.m. on Memorial Day, I stood with my feet a few inches behind the Bolder Boulder starting line, ready for my wave to begin its 10K quest on a sunny, clear morning.

Scents for a woman

Yves Saint Laurent retrospective comes to life with perfume pairing

By Elizabeth Miller
Artwork in museums is usually meant to be seen and not touched, not tasted and not smelled. But the Denver Art Museum is partnering with local perfumer Dawn Spencer Hurwitz to organize an event that turns that notion on its head.

Women are beautiful, naturally

Garry Winogrand’s photographs capture women as they were

By Elizabeth Miller
The Denver Art Museum (DAM) has assembled 50 photos from its permanent collection of Winogrand images — about half of what it has in its archives and a fraction of the photos Winogrand took on the subject — for the exhibit Garry Winogrand: Women are Beautiful.

Dance rock

Ballet Nouveau Colorado presents an unlikely mix of ballet and rock ’n’ roll

By David Accomazzo
In a dance studio in an industrial section of Broomfield, the dancers of Ballet Nouveau Colorado, decked in casual athletic clothes, are performing to the wall-length mirror inside the studio. The music of David Bowie blares through speakers, and the room is as much filled with glam rock as it is with the breathing of the winded dancers.

Setting fire to sex trafficking

Matchbox auction funds art therapy with sex-trafficked girls in Cambodia

By Elizabeth Miller
Sue Chambers Wallingford and a team of eight Naropa art therapy grad students were looking for a creative way to engage local artists in producing artwork for an auction benefiting a nonprofit they’ve launched to help sex trafficking victims in Cambodia. On March 17, all that artwork will be unveiled at the “Small Resources = Big Possibilities” gala.
