Boulder has the eighth largest concentration of artists in the nation, according to the Trends Report issued by the Community Foundation. Their talents have a new outlet starting tomorrow.

More than 100 artists and arts organizations are expected to participate in the first ever Boulder Arts Week, taking place March 28 through April 6. This week-long celebration of the robust arts community in Boulder will feature a diverse range of arts and entertainment – fine art, sculpture, dance, theatre, music, cinema, outdoor art experiences and more. You’ll find them at traditional venues, such as the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Macky Auditorium and the Dairy Center for the Arts, as well as unexpected places like retail stores, warehouses, street corners and even buses.

Boulder Arts Week kicks off with a party at The Dairy Center for the Arts at 5:30 p.m tomorrow night, followed by arts events at locations throughout the city. Some highlights of the week include a collaboration between the Boulder Bach Festival and 3rd Law Dance/ Theater, eTown’s live songwriting competition, a screening and conversation about filmmaking and First Friday Art Walk.­

The Camera is proud to sponsor Boulder Arts Week, and I’m thrilled to be on the board for what I’m certain will become a major community event.
