Event Image “Life is much too important to take seriously…” art exhibit


“Life is much too important to take seriously…” is the title of an art exhibit by Jessica Ambs Taylor, CU-Boulder Grounds and Nursery staffer. The twenty-six three-dimensional collages or “art boxes” are now on display in the CU-Boulder Norlin Library east lobby. Whimsical and satirical, each compendium of found objects in a found container tells a story, such as “Indigenous Ice Box,” “Hunting the Fungi,” “The Way of Tea,” “Dia de los Muertos Mama Bebe,” and “Heart Break Hotel.” This exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours through August 2014.
Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Camp Shakespeare is a 16-year-old education program run by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. Each summer, kids ages 10-18 come to CU-Boulder’s campus to study Shakespeare with CSF professionals. Working in small groups, these students learn about Shakespeare by rehearsing, staging and performing a shortened play on the Outdoor Mary Rippon Stage. Camp Shakespeare is a fabulous way for kids and teens to explore theater and Shakespeare in a creative and supportive environment. In addition to acting training, students are coached by a Voice, Speech & Text expert on enunciation, diction and clarity, which will aid them on and off stage. Campers also work with a stage combat professional to learn the safe way to fight onstage. Tuition includes one ticket to attend a CSF production. Due to high demand, and a lengthy waiting list, Camp Shakespeare is expanding! CSF will offer two sessions of Camp Shakespeare in the summer of 2014. Campers may register for
Session One (June 2-30),
Session Two (July 21-August 8)

Event Image Alchemist’s Corner: The Public and Private Life of John Barrymore
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Heritage Center has teamed up with CU Libraries Archives and Special Collections and Colorado Shakespeare Festival for a special exhibition of Alchemist’s Corner: The Public and Private Life of John Barrymore.

Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s comical production of I Hate Hamlet features the ghost of the quintessential Hamlet of the 20th Century, John Barrymore, so imagine our surprise and delight to learn that the metaphorical ghost of Barrymore is right here in Boulder, “haunting” CU’s Norlin Library.

Event Image Henry IV Part 1
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Often considered Shakespeare’s most sophisticated history play, the unquiet reign of Henry IV following the murder of Richard II introduces the Bard’s greatest comedic character, Falstaff, the licentious, crafty knight-adviser to Prince Hal. As the action moves from political sparring between the king and the rebellious Hotspur to the clash of swords in battle, the prince begins a journey toward his heroic reign.

Event Image Colorado Skies: Our Solar System's Moons
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Our "Colorado Skies" lecture series takes you on a journey through our night sky here in Colorado. This one hour program is broken down into two parts. First is the star talk about the night sky. We explore the stars, constellations and the overall mechanics of how the sky and objects within it move. This is a great chance for members of our audience to ask questions about their favorite constellation or what the sky looks like at the Equator or any other place on earth. The second half of the show is based on a selected topic, from Mars to Black Holes to the nature of science. Colorado Skies is a different show each week. As the sky changes and so do the hot topics of Astronomy, "Colorado Skies" will be your gateway to knowing the cosmos.

Our solar system's moons
This week on "epic and awesome/Above and Beyond" we are going to take an inside look into what makes the moons in our solar system go round. We will visit and discuss moon formation, orbital types, and why Jupiter is such a hog.

Event Image I Hate Hamlet
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

A rising Hollywood star accepts the role of Hamlet at New York’s Shakespeare in the Park and his agent thinks he’s gone daft. Why would he trade a fluffy, big-money TV role for dusty old Shakespeare? Leave it to the ghost of actor John Barrymore, the quintessential Hamlet of the 20th century, to hilariously haunt Andy in a play that seeks to answer that question. Written by New Yorker contributor Paul Rudnick, who “may be the funniest writer for the stage in the United States today,” says The New York Times.

8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

SLAB - New Theatre Production


Born of the debris of Hurricane Katrina, SLAB explores the essential human need to create narrative as a means of survival and transition, honoring what we can take with us when there is nothing left to take: our story. 

SLAB follows the story of Tiger, an ex-stripper whose impoverished American existence is turned upside down after a hurricane destroys her town. As Tiger waits for salvation on the slab that is all that remains of her home, she begins to tell her story; her memories flash to life before our eyes.

Adapted by Gleason Bauer and Emily K. Harrison from the novel by Selah Saterstrom featuring: Mark Collins, Lauren Dennis, Emily K. Harrison, Paige Lynn Larson, Hadley Mays and Cage Sebastian Pierre. Video design by Christina Battle; sound score composed by Janet Feder and Paul Fowler; lighting design by Jess Buttery.

8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

A gnashing storm spills the enemies of the great sorcerer and rightful duke of Milan Prospero upon the shores of his island realm, setting the stage for revenge.

Event Image The Merry Wives of Windsor
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Falstaff, one of Shakespeare’s most enduring comic characters, is at the heart of one of the Bard’s greatest laugh-out-loud farces. Pursuing the amorous attentions of two married English ladies, the pompous, rotund knight doesn’t let their mischievous pranking swerve him from his quest. Sure, he’s been punk’d, but surely it’s a sign of affection. Truly one of Shakespeare’s funniest and most popular plays.

2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Often considered Shakespeare’s most sophisticated history play, the unquiet reign of Henry IV following the murder of Richard II introduces the Bard’s greatest comedic character, Falstaff, the licentious, crafty knight-adviser to Prince Hal. As the action moves from political sparring between the king and the rebellious Hotspur to the clash of swords in battle, the prince begins a journey toward his heroic reign.
Event Image Henry IV Part 2
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.
Join us for two very special “original practices” performances of Henry IV, Part 2 — Shakespeare as it might have been done in his time. Hal is now on the road to kingship while his old advisor Falstaff ever deeper into ill health and petty criminality. See Part 1 in a matinee, enjoy dinner with us, then be part of an evening presentation of Part 2 for an unforgettable theater experience.

Event Image “Life is much too important to take seriously…” art exhibit


“Life is much too important to take seriously…” is the title of an art exhibit by Jessica Ambs Taylor, CU-Boulder Grounds and Nursery staffer. The twenty-six three-dimensional collages or “art boxes” are now on display in the CU-Boulder Norlin Library east lobby. Whimsical and satirical, each compendium of found objects in a found container tells a story, such as “Indigenous Ice Box,” “Hunting the Fungi,” “The Way of Tea,” “Dia de los Muertos Mama Bebe,” and “Heart Break Hotel.” This exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours through August 2014.
Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

A rising Hollywood star accepts the role of Hamlet at New York’s Shakespeare in the Park and his agent thinks he’s gone daft. Why would he trade a fluffy, big-money TV role for dusty old Shakespeare? Leave it to the ghost of actor John Barrymore, the quintessential Hamlet of the 20th century, to hilariously haunt Andy in a play that seeks to answer that question. Written by New Yorker contributor Paul Rudnick, who “may be the funniest writer for the stage in the United States today,” says The New York Times.

Adapted by Gleason Bauer and Emily K. Harrison from the novel by Selah Saterstrom featuring: Mark Collins, Lauren Dennis, Emily K. Harrison, Paige Lynn Larson, Hadley Mays and Cage Sebastian Pierre.

Event Image The Merry Wives of Windsor
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Falstaff, one of Shakespeare’s most enduring comic characters, is at the heart of one of the Bard’s greatest laugh-out-loud farces. Pursuing the amorous attentions of two married English ladies, the pompous, rotund knight doesn’t let their mischievous pranking swerve him from his quest. Sure, he’s been punk’d, but surely it’s a sign of affection. Truly one of Shakespeare’s funniest and most popular plays.

Ideal Affect: Cultural Causes and Behavioral Consequences

Empirical studies reveal that emotion plays a critical role in our everyday lives. Most of this work, however, has focused on how people actually feel ("actual affect"). In this talk, I will argue that how people ideally want to feel, or "ideal affect," is not only distinct from actual affect, but can also play an important role in determining behavior. After defining ideal affect and describing its cultural basis, I will present cross-cultural findings suggesting that ideal affect can influence choice, inferences about others, emotional experience, and conceptualizations of happiness and well-being. Together, this evidence raises the novel possibility that what people do may be based more on how they want to feel than how they actually feel.

Colorado Shakespeare Festival's Camp Shakespeare and Shakespeare Sprites
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Camp Shakespeare is a 16-year-old education program run by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. Each summer, kids ages 10-18 come to CU-Boulder’s campus to study Shakespeare with CSF professionals. Working in small groups, these students learn about Shakespeare by rehearsing, staging and performing a shortened play on the Outdoor Mary Rippon Stage. Camp Shakespeare is a fabulous way for kids and teens to explore theater and Shakespeare in a creative and supportive environment. In addition to acting training, students are coached by a Voice, Speech & Text expert on enunciation, diction and clarity, which will aid them on and off stage. Campers also work with a stage combat professional to learn the safe way to fight onstage. Tuition includes one ticket to attend a CSF production. Due to high demand, and a lengthy waiting list, Camp Shakespeare is expanding! CSF will offer two sessions of Camp Shakespeare in the summer of 2014. Campers may register for
Session One (June 2-30),
Session Two (July 21-August 8)
or both!

Both sessions of Camp Shakespeare will culminate in free public performances on the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre (Session One: Monday, June 30;
Session Two: Friday, August 8)

Don’t miss out on this popular program!

Session One: June 2-June 30, 2014. 9am-12pm, Monday-Friday
Session Two: July 21-August 8, 2014 1pm-5pm, Monday-Friday
Shakespeare’s Sprites, now in its fourth year, is a playful introduction to the Bard for ages 6-9. Discover the fun of Shakespeare through pool-noodle fights, Elizabethan costumes, period insults, Renaissance songs and lively scene work. Sprites can sign up for one or two weeks. Each week culminates in a final showing for family and friends. This program is the perfect way to instill a love of language and theatre in your child. Students enrolled in Shakespeare’s Sprites should have basic reading skills. Tuition includes one ticket to attend a group field trip to a CSF production.

Event Image Henry IV Part 1
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Often considered Shakespeare’s most sophisticated history play, the unquiet reign of Henry IV following the murder of Richard II introduces the Bard’s greatest comedic character, Falstaff, the licentious, crafty knight-adviser to Prince Hal. As the action moves from political sparring between the king and the rebellious Hotspur to the clash of swords in battle, the prince begins a journey toward his heroic reign.

SLAB - New Theatre Production


Born of the debris of Hurricane Katrina, SLAB explores the essential human need to create narrative as a means of survival and transition, honoring what we can take with us when there is nothing left to take: our story. 

SLAB follows the story of Tiger, an ex-stripper whose impoverished American existence is turned upside down after a hurricane destroys her town. As Tiger waits for salvation on the slab that is all that remains of her home, she begins to tell her story; her memories flash to life before our eyes.

Adapted by Gleason Bauer and Emily K. Harrison from the novel by Selah Saterstrom featuring: Mark Collins, Lauren Dennis, Emily K. Harrison, Paige Lynn Larson, Hadley Mays and Cage Sebastian Pierre. Video design by Christina Battle; sound score composed by Janet Feder and Paul Fowler; lighting design by Jess Buttery.

Event Image “Life is much too important to take seriously…” art exhibit


“Life is much too important to take seriously…” is the title of an art exhibit by Jessica Ambs Taylor, CU-Boulder Grounds and Nursery staffer. The twenty-six three-dimensional collages or “art boxes” are now on display in the CU-Boulder Norlin Library east lobby. Whimsical and satirical, each compendium of found objects in a found container tells a story, such as “Indigenous Ice Box,” “Hunting the Fungi,” “The Way of Tea,” “Dia de los Muertos Mama Bebe,” and “Heart Break Hotel.” This exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours through August 2014.
Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

Event Image I Hate Hamlet
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

A rising Hollywood star accepts the role of Hamlet at New York’s Shakespeare in the Park and his agent thinks he’s gone daft. Why would he trade a fluffy, big-money TV role for dusty old Shakespeare? Leave it to the ghost of actor John Barrymore, the quintessential Hamlet of the 20th century, to hilariously haunt Andy in a play that seeks to answer that question. Written by New Yorker contributor Paul Rudnick, who “may be the funniest writer for the stage in the United States today,” says The New York Times.

Event Image The Merry Wives of Windsor
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Falstaff, one of Shakespeare’s most enduring comic characters, is at the heart of one of the Bard’s greatest laugh-out-loud farces. Pursuing the amorous attentions of two married English ladies, the pompous, rotund knight doesn’t let their mischievous pranking swerve him from his quest. Sure, he’s been punk’d, but surely it’s a sign of affection. Truly one of Shakespeare’s funniest and most popular plays.

6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

A gnashing storm spills the enemies of the great sorcerer and rightful duke of Milan Prospero upon the shores of his island realm, setting the stage for revenge. But from there, Shakespeare’s final, much-loved play defies expectations, erupting into a timeless, exotic tale of monsters and cavorting spirits, love and song, merriment and mercy.
