“Boulder Arts Week is an event that’s going to build a lot of community, both within the arts community and between the arts community and the rest of Boulder,” says project manager Emily Harrison. “It’s about encouraging arts and art organizations to work together … and it’s about filling the major need of awareness of the arts in Boulder.”

Boulder is consistently ranked nationally as an arts destination, most recently as high as eighth in the United States by the Community Foundation’s Trends Report, and the organizers of the inaugural Boulder Arts Week hope to set a tradition of spotlighting the amount and quality of local artists once a year.  Some works folks can see will be at Belgin Yucelen Studios.
