The City of Boulder encourages the public to view community artwork inspired by the city’s diverse Open Space and Mountain Parks at the “Art Inspired by the Land” exhibition. This community art show features artwork from more than 100 community artists – of all ages and abilities – and will be on display beginning tomorrow at the Boulder Public Library’s Canyon Gallery, 1001 Arapahoe Ave.

The city recognizes the past few years have been challenging for all – with shared open space providing an important place for community members to seek emotional and physical support. For the upcoming “Art Inspired by the Land” exhibition, the city has sought artwork that honors the comfort and healing that nature provides and to celebrate our community’s connection with our shared public lands.

As part of this community exhibition, the city also will host two events:

  • An opening reception for the art exhibition from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 11, at the Boulder Library’s Canyon Gallery, 1001 Arapahoe Ave.

  • A performance night – featuring musicians, song writers, poets and film makers – from 4 to 6:45 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18, at the Boulder Library's Canyon Theater, 1001 Arapahoe Ave.

“Art Inspired by the Land” pieces will be on display until Sunday, Sept. 18.
