Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibit: Shakespeare's Bouquet (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Event Image Exhibit - Mirage and Myth: Distorting Our Perceptions Through Maps
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The University Libraries are pleased to present an eclectic mix of its maps exploring the idea of myth.  Maps range from depictions of sea creatures, fantastical animals and "exotic" peoples in far-away lands, to propaganda maps with deliberate distortions and explorer's maps with honest mistakes. Ranging from medieval to contemporary, the exhibit showcases examples from many different cultures and geographic areas. Maps from the CU Art Museum and the Rocky Mountain Map Society’s member collections will also be on display.

Visit the Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences between May 2nd and July 1st to see how maps can challenge our habitual perceptions of the world.

This exhibit is part of Rocky Mountain Map Society’s Map Month 2016: “Illusions, Delusions & Confusions”. For more information, visit http://rmmaps.org or email maplib@colorado.edu.

Event Image Sangeeta Reddy: Fractured Landscapes of the West
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Fractured Landscapes of the West features a series of landscape paintings by Denver-based, Indian-born artist Sangeeta Reddy. The large and small-scale paintings illuminate the striking and complex landscapes of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah through a vast range of colors that fade from dark to light. Reddy’s representations of the different natural formations found in the mountains, valleys, canyons, and deserts across the Colorado Plateau become almost abstract as she renders rock forms, riverbeds, and geological strata with a bold color palette and stylized shapes.

This exhibit is at the Macky Gallery from March 3 to May 29, 2016. More information here.

BMoCA at Macky is an off-site exhibition series presented by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art in collaboration with Macky Auditorium.

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.

All Day

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

The University Libraries are pleased to present an eclectic mix of its maps exploring the idea of myth.  Maps range from depictions of sea creatures, fantastical animals and "exotic" peoples in far-away lands, to propaganda maps with deliberate distortions and explorer's maps with honest mistakes. Ranging from medieval to contemporary, the exhibit showcases examples from many different cultures and geographic areas. Maps from the CU Art Museum and the Rocky Mountain Map Society’s member collections will also be on display.

Visit the Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences between May 2nd and July 1st to see how maps can challenge our habitual perceptions of the world.

This exhibit is part of Rocky Mountain Map Society’s Map Month 2016: “Illusions, Delusions & Confusions”. For more information, visit http://rmmaps.org or email maplib@colorado.edu.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

"We came into the world like brother and brother, and now let's go hand in hand, not one before another.”
Directed by Geoffrey Kent

From the creative mind behind the CSF’s triumphant A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2013), The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare’s purest comedy—with a twist. Set in jazzy, sexy 1930s Paris, this hilarious new production bends the classic adventure of mistaken identities in a different direction that puts the women in charge...and the men in their places. Sultry singing, cabaret nightlife, puns and punchlines, this is Comedy, inside out.

To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

Event Image Exhibit - Mirage and Myth: Distorting Our Perceptions Through Maps
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The University Libraries are pleased to present an eclectic mix of its maps exploring the idea of myth.  Maps range from depictions of sea creatures, fantastical animals and "exotic" peoples in far-away lands, to propaganda maps with deliberate distortions and explorer's maps with honest mistakes. Ranging from medieval to contemporary, the exhibit showcases examples from many different cultures and geographic areas. Maps from the CU Art Museum and the Rocky Mountain Map Society’s member collections will also be on display.

Visit the Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences between May 2nd and July 1st to see how maps can challenge our habitual perceptions of the world.

This exhibit is part of Rocky Mountain Map Society’s Map Month 2016: “Illusions, Delusions & Confusions”. For more information, visit http://rmmaps.org or email maplib@colorado.edu.

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.
