Celebrated professional tango dancers open Boulder Tango Studio

By Camilla Sterne
To hear a person talk about tango is to witness a blushing love affair. They’ll speak of the heart, of an unspoken connection between partners, of passion; they might even go so far as to call it an addiction.

What can be done with what we throw away

Nick Cave’s work journeys through our own kitschy past

By Elizabeth Miller
Nick Cave can take a garish ceramic bird, and a kitschy ceramic fruit bowl, and a few strings of plastic beads, and put it all together in a way that makes a stunning, and beautiful, sculpture. There’s no breaking that equation down to make the math work on how ugly adds up to entrancing, but read the answer to the equation and it’s a valuable comment on the often overlooked kitsch in our lives.

Community collaboration

By Stephanie Riesco

Naropa's matchbox art fundraiser: Sparked to make a difference

Naropa professor, students plan return to Cambodia to teach art therapy

By Elizabeth Miller
The drawing shows a purple bird’s nest holding five eggs, each a different color, balanced on the limb of a tree. Filling the sky around the tree branches is a crowd of birds, open V shapes drawn in orange pastel. It’s a simple drawing, but a big story.
