9 Totally Doable Things to do in One Day for Boulder Arts Week (March 30 - April 7)

Get your art on in one day! Boulder Arts Week 2018, happening March 30 through April 7, is nearing 400 events! How in the world will you immerse yourself in such an array? Can you have an artful Boulder visit AND walk the charming downtown heart of Boulder, you ask? Of course you can. I’ve built an art-filled day for you and your family. No family along? You can drink more! Visit boulderartsweek.org to view the full schedule of events and happenings! 

But first, coffee. Always. Amante Coffee has delish coffee and is hosting a small exhibition of Taos Pueblo paintings by Boulder artist Kathleen Spencer Johns. Next, check out the sister stores Adorned and Nomad for exhibitions of jewelry from the owner’s private collections. You’re welcome to get me a gift here if you’d like. After that, to the bookstore! Boulder Book Store was just named the best bookstore in the country by Publisher’s Weekly. We aren’t surprised.

By now you’ll want a snack so head to Wonder for a healthy juice (don’t worry, there will be unhealthy things later. Bear with me.) Wonder is hosting an exhibition as part of the Boulder Creative Collective's ALT.ART Program, featuring Boulder based artist Abby Jacobs.

Now that you’re juiced, head over to the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (bonus points for going through Central Park to see Dispersion’s new public art by the Bandshell! On view at Boulder’s premier contemporary museum are a beautiful selection of Wopo Holup's topographical drawings.

You’re really inspired, right? Time to try your hand! POSHsplat hosts daily painting workshops and independent time for you to paint up a storm.

Yes now you can have a drink, calm down. Try any of the breweries and restaurants on Pearl - (Check out the Downtown Boulder Beer Trail) AND while you’re there, sit outside and do some judging! The sixth annual Student Banner Project offers 53 new lamp pole banners created by the talents and imagination of budding artists from Columbine Elementary School, Casey Middle School and Boulder High School with a unifying theme of "The Future of Boulder: What does the future of Boulder look like to you?" Now is the time to vote for your favorite: BoulderDowntown.com/Banners.

End your fabulous artful day at either The Laughing Goat or Boulder Theater seeing some excellent talent in iconic Boulder spaces.

You’re welcome... Now who is coming with me?
