Event Image Exhibition: Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
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 CU on the Weekend: Chinese and American Views on the Media's Role
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The media’s role as a social institution has long been a pressing issue for Chinese and American scholars, politicians, journalists and others. In this lecture, Timothy Weston will focus on the complex history of Sino-American discourse related to media and society. Beginning in the early 20th century, China and the United States sparred over the media’s role and, in fact, served as a foil for each other regarding media attitudes and practices. However, as the Internet, social media and other media technologies contributed to globalization, this has complicated a traditionally confrontational discourse between the two countries over the appropriate role of the press in society. This lecture is part of the CU on the Weekend series, which features some of CU Boulder's most dynamic faculty. The classroom opens at 12:30 p.m. Arriving early is recommended, since seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Advance registration is not required, and reservations will not be accepted.

Event Image Boulder Philharmonic Season Finale: The Pines of Rome
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

The spirit of Italy permeates our season finale with influences from the Renaissance to today. Concertmaster and violinist Charles Wetherbee is joined by his CU colleague and guitarist Nicolò Spera for the last of our season’s pairings: a world premiere by British composer Stephen Goss titled Invisible Cities, based on Italo Calvino’s novel of the same name. Orchestral favorites from opera titans Verdi and Puccini prepare the way for the surround-sound splendor of Respighi’s Pines of Rome, one of the most sonically overwhelming works in all of music.

The concert will feature the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra and Conductor Michael Butterman. The "Pines of Rome" program will include the following:

Monumentum pro Gesualdo, Stravinsky
Four original versions of Boccherini’s Return of the Nightwatch from Madrid, Berio
Invisible Cities, Goss
Overture to Nabucco, Verdi
The Chrysanthemums, Puccini
The Pines of Rome, Respighi


Event Image Peter and the Starcatcher
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

By Rick Elice
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever wondered what Peter Pan’s childhood was like before Wendy met him in Neverland? Rick Elice’s play, based on a best-selling 2006 novel, travels back to Peter’s early adventures in an orphanage, aboard a weather-beaten ship holding precious cargo, and on a magical remote island. “Peter and the Starcatcher” takes the theatergoers to golden grottoes, deep jungles and active volcanoes on adventures just as exciting as those in the classic story we all know and love.
