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.

On Aug. 21, 2017 the best total eclipse of the Sun in 40 years will cross the United States.

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.
