Arts and Culture
One of the many great things about Boulder is our support for arts and culture, and the wonderful offerings we have here.
I have a keen interest in art and culture. I celebrate Boulder’s amazing community of artists, musicians, dancers, photographers, filmmakers, architects, poets, writers, street performers, and more.
Boulder is so fortunate to have the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, the Colorado Music Festival, the Dairy Center for the Arts, the Colorado Chautauqua Association, Studio Arts Boulder, the NoBo Art District, the Museum of Boulder and the Boulder Center for Performing Arts, to name just a few.
Boulder also benefits from amazing performances at the University of Colorado and Naropa University – concerts, dance, art exhibits, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, and others. And each year, thousands of residents enjoy the Conference on World Affairs. These are but a few of the many benefits of living in a university town.
I also celebrate the arts programs in the Boulder Valley School District, at the K-12 level. From pre-school to amazing performances at Boulder High and Fairview, we have very dedicated educators who understand the importance of arts education in childhood development.
In addition, Boulder has benefitted from multi-cultural additions to our community. We have an array of organizations and programs that celebrate this vibrant aspect of our city.
On Council, I would look for ways to strengthen not only the City’s arts and cultural programs, but also encourage support of the wonderful arts organizations in our city, just a very few of which are named here. We need to make sure these vibrant aspects of our community continue and have the resources they need.
