Boulder Arts Week returns for second year


Boulder Arts Week is returning after a very successful turnout and positive reception from last year’s event. Focusing on a wide variety of artists, ranging from musicians, painters, actors, poets and dancers, the second annual Boulder Arts Week welcomes creative minds from any style of art.

With a community as vibrant as Boulder’s, there isn’t a down day throughout the week that starts on Friday, March 27. Spearheaded by writer, director, actor, producer and teacher Emily K. Harrison, the week features art from anyone in the community who wants to be involved. There isn’t a fee for participating, but every artist is responsible for his or her own production and marketing of their art.

But showing original pieces isn’t the only benefit to the week. Workshops will be held throughout for both the public and the artists, such as tips and tricks to selling art in a post print society.

But for those interested solely as a voyeur, there will be plenty to do throughout the week as the calendar is racked up with more than a dozen events for each day from March 27 until April 4. The opening party will be held at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art on Friday, showcasing artists Kristen Hatgi Sink and Jillian FitzMaurice, as well as a preview of the upcoming events.

In 2014, Boulder Arts Week featured more than 750 participating artists, drew in more than 14,000 guests, and hosted 400 events. Harrison expects that number to grow this year.

It’s something you do not want to miss. Even if you can’t make it to every event the website, boulderartsweek.org, has a complete calendar than can be broken down by date, style of art, or event type. Get out there and explore the people you share this community with.
