Among games like Halo, Call of Duty, Rock Band and other top-tier video game franchises, it’s easy for a game like Enslaved: Odyssey to the West to be ignored. But the game, a third-person action-adventure, takes place 150 years from now in a post-apocalyptic America, what’s a better recipe for a game than that?]]> <![CDATA[Georgia O'Keeffe at the Denver Art Museum: Far from flowers]]> What O’Keeffe found, when she came to New Mexico, was a place where her study of line moved from the verticals of the New York City skyscrapers that championed America’s rise as an industrial power to the horizontal adobe structures and mesas of New Mexico — another American icon, but one much more about native people and ancient traditions than the rise of a new world superpower.]]> <![CDATA[Inspiration and location]]> The fascinating acrylic-onwood paintings of Caitlin Buck, a Boulder native who graduated from Naropa University in 2012, will see their three-month appearance on the walls of the Laughing Goat Coffeehouse end this month.]]> <![CDATA[BMOCA explores the art of city chicken coops]]> Urban Chicken Coop Projects runs until Jan. 17, 2010, at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.
