<![CDATA[Boulder - Weekly - Arts]]> <![CDATA[A data-driven machine]]> That we’ve become so mired in technology as to make the relationship between humans and their data impossible to separate is the message poignantly posted on the walls of the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art for their latest exhibition, The Art of Data.]]> <![CDATA[Uncomfortable cuisine]]> 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.]]> <![CDATA[Not your average stoner]]> Michael Grab thrives on the impossible. In fact, the professional stone balancer has made the phrase “as impossible as possible” the motto by which he creates. Most of his sculptures, which can often be found among the ripples of Boulder Creek, feature stones of varying shapes, sizes and textures balancing atop one another so methodically, so delicately, it appears as though a single breath could bring them tumbling down.]]> <![CDATA[Revisiting Modernism]]> Landscapes of shapes. Aspen groves minus trees. Angled bedrooms. In Modernism Revisited, Denver artists Tracy Felix, Sushe Felix and Susan Cooper fracture the familiar for a fresh view of the Colorado mountains, nature and life.]]> <![CDATA[Stormy inspiration]]> At one point in his life, David Mayhew gave up on art.]]> <![CDATA[What can be done with what we throw away]]> 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.]]> <![CDATA[Arts | Week of March 19, 2015]]> First Glance/Second Look: Quilts from the Denver Art Museum Collection..]]> <![CDATA[Warp and weft]]> It may have been 20 years ago today that Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play, but it was 50 years ago that the Handweavers Guild of Boulder first met up to combine their handweaving powers. And back then, it was for handweavers only, leaving Boulder’s needlepoint community out in the cold.]]> <![CDATA[Arts | Week of August 28, 2014]]> Denver Art Museum, 100 W. 14th Ave. Parkway, Denver, 720-865-5000. Through January 18, 2015..]]> <![CDATA[Shades of white]]> Anyone who has lived in Boulder for more than a few days has heard the term “too white,” as in, “This city is too white.” Yes, there are a lot of white people here (87 percent according to the U.S. Census), but why are large groups of white people in general bad? And would throwing in some people of color really fix the issue? Is it an issue that needs to be fixed?]]> <![CDATA[Art in all forms]]> For many, ballet might seem inaccessible, even intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Denver’s Ballet Nouveau Colorado, entering its 10th season, aims to appeal to a wide audience in various ways, says the group’s artistic director, Garrett Ammon.]]> <![CDATA[Arts | Week of Sept. 25, 2014]]> ART/TEKNE: Part 3 “Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential” —.]]> <![CDATA['Dead Space 2' is one of the scariest games ever made]]> While you're trying to survive and escape, you're also trying to find the source of the spread of the virus and end it once and for all, at the same time getting creepy flashbacks of your girlfriend, who died in the first game.]]> <![CDATA[Arts | Week of May 21, 2015]]> Calling all Photgraphers for 2015 Land Through the Lens Exhibit..]]> <![CDATA[Imagination knows no age]]> 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.]]> <![CDATA[Is the Internet making us dumber?]]> Never has the rift between humanity and technology been so apparent as now, in the midst of the digital revolution, when technology is evolving at a more rapid pace than in any other time in history. It is also the only time where we will be faced with a rift between Digital Natives, who came of age in the digital era, and Digital Immigrants, who remember a time when cell phones, iPads, GPS and Facebook were not a way of life.]]> <![CDATA[Arts | Week of March 26, 2015]]> First Glance/Second Look: Quilts from the Denver Art Museum Collection..]]> <![CDATA[Arts | Week of May 14, 2015]]> Calling all Photgraphers for 2015 Land Through the Lens Exhibit..]]> <![CDATA[Arts | Week of Sept. 18, 2014]]> ART/TEKNE: Part 3 “Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential” —.]]> <![CDATA[Arts | Week of May 28, 2015]]> Calling all Photgraphers for 2015 Land Through the Lens Exhibit..]]>
