By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
While Dan Ericson was attending Arapahoe Community College to tighten up his graphic design skills, he didn’t expect a simple homework assignment to shape his career as an artist. “I was doing a project for a regular drawing class; it was portraits of people,” Ericson says. “I ran out of supplies in the middle of the night and the project was due the next morning.

Boulder's Afro-Brazilian dance scene comes to life

By April Charmaine
Dancing with beings seen and unseen, connecting with nature, culture, and activism are all a part of what you may find in one of the Brazilian dance offerings in Boulder. Ask anyone what the word Afro-Brazilian means and you will surely hear a concoction of definitions, a melting pot of meanings which all are based on the idea that the Afro-Brazilian is a Brazilian-born black person — which in itself turns out to be a diluted classification.
