11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image The Great American Eclipse of Aug. 21, 2017
7:00 PM

On Aug. 21, 2017 the best total eclipse of the Sun in 40 years will cross the United States. Colorado will see roughly 95% of the sun covered by the Moon, and lucky people in Wyoming will see an amazing TOTAL eclipse with fiery pink prominences at the Sun’s edge, silver streamers of the corona crossing the sky, and animals and people doing strange things!

Fiske Planetarium Director, Dr. Doug Duncan, has been chasing eclipses since he was a student in 1970. Additionally, he arranged to charter the supersonic Concorde to fly as fast as the Moon’s shadow. In 2017, he will lead a trip to Grand Teton in Wyoming. This talk will explain the tremendous excitement of eclipses, and the HUGE difference between 95% and total. Prepare for an experience you will remember your whole life!

Event Image The Rocky Horror Show, the musical
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

“The Rocky Horror Show” is an outrageous mashup of campy science fiction, Marvel-inspired characters, 1960s beach party jams and rock ’n’ roll music of every vintage. When a newly engaged couple gets caught in a storm and meets the tan, muscular new creation of mad transvestite scientist Frank N. Furter, their world is forever changed. First premiered at a small experimental theater in London more than 40 years ago, “The Rocky Horror Show” is now a worldwide stage hit.

Note: CU-Boulder’s University Theatre will provide props for audience members. Please do not bring your own.
