Last night I went to the opening of a new exhibit at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) called ‘Cut & Paste’. The exhibit displays a variety of images portraying life and current issues; essentially collage art. Artists featured in the exhibit include: Jesse Ash, Tyler Beard, Alicia Ordal, Jeff Raphael, Stas Orlovski, Adam Parker Smith, Judy Pfaff and Mario Zoots. One of my personal favorites was a piece made entirely of Superman comic book cut outs. There was also a great piece made of materials from an Asian market.
The lively atmosphere at the opening was made not only by the art but by all of its guests. Everyone there was roaming throughout the exhibit, taking in each piece while enjoying conversation with the variety of guests ranging from college students to Boulder families. It was the perfect summer night to be out and about in Boulder, enjoying the summer air after an afternoon rain. I had the pleasure of attending with my great friend and roommate (who happens to be the intern at the museum). I got a personal tour and inside scoop on the museum which I really enjoyed. This included the live music and an assortment of appetizers (not to mention the open bar).
‘Cut & Paste’ will be residing at the BMoCA from June 13th through September 15th, so you have plenty of time to drop in and mosey around. Year round BMoCA members enjoy exclusive previews of new exhibits, but all are welcome to always enjoy the free public receptions (I was in this category). This is an exhibit that you don’t want to miss this summer. Take the family and make a day out of it. Grab a bite on Pearl Street Mall and then walk on over to 1750 13th Street for an afternoon at Boulder’s one and only museum of contemporary art.
