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.

**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.

Spend a morning meeting some little-known creatures! This free program will feature live caterpillars, munching on their food plants right in front of you. Explore caterpillar biology and learn incredible, but true stories about the caterpillar's strange and surprising adaptations in our Becoming Butterflies exhibit. Some caterpillars may be camouflaged to look like twigs or snakes. Some may have spectacular spines or brightly colored baubles. Make your own clay caterpillar and listen to caterpillar story time in the Discovery Corner. There will be plenty to see and touch.  Stop by any time between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. You're sure to learn something new!

These events are part of our Early Childhood Initiative. We are planning to renovate our Discovery Corner and offer more programs for families with young children. Your thoughts and ideas are an integral part of our planning process. There will be opportunity to provide input at these events. If you would like to be involved, but are unable to attend one of the Caterpillar Days (July 26 and August 7), please email or call the Museum Education Office (303-492-1666).

Event Image The Comedy of Errors - Colorado Shakespeare Festival
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

By William Shakespeare
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.
Free Public Lecture, "Strange stuff: a second quantum revolution"
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Boulder School for Condensed Matter and Materials Physics presents a public lecture on Tuesday, July 26th at 7 p.m. in Duane Physics, Room G1B30.

Presented by: Leon Balents, (KITP/UCSB)

Abstract: Weird but true: the real world is without a doubt governed by quantum mechanics. It tells us that apparently simple assumptions about reality are not true. The glass is not necessary empty or full, but can be both at the same time. Erwin Schrodinger, one of the founders of quantum theory, emphasized the strangeness of quantum mechanics by pointing out that it allowed for the possibility of a cat that is simultaneously alive and dead. In practice physicists evade the weirdness by applying quantum mechanics only to microscopic entities like atoms and electrons, and content ourselves with the knowledge that while Schrodinger's cat is in principle possible, it is in practice extremely unstable and completely infeasible to arrange.

But more recently, researchers have turned this question around to ask: what sorts of weird quantum states *can* be achieved? The answers are surprising. Quite strange quantum behavior is possible even in large assemblies of electrons and atoms. New research reveals that through such quantum quirks, matter can take on many more forms than previously thought possible. These ideas are influencing not only our understanding of matter, but also that of information and gravity. In my talk, I'll introduce you to this second quantum revolution and its implications for future.

Leon Balents is a theoretical physicist working broadly in the area of correlated electron systems, quantum magnetism, and complex materials. He received his PhD in 1994 from Harvard University, and is now a permanent member of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, and Professor of Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he has been on the faculty since 1999. Balents is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the recipient of an NSF Career Award, the AP Sloan Fellowship, the David and Lucile Packard Fellowship, and several visiting chairs. His interests include correlation effects in one-dimensional systems, exotic quantum critical phenomena, topology in the solid state, and spin liquids in frustrated magnets.

Event Image Cymbeline
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

"How hard it is to hide the sparks of nature!”
Directed by Jim Helsinger

Cymbeline is a vassal king of the mighty Roman Empire, but Britain herself remains a wild and untamed land in this mythic, idyllic romance. When the king banishes Posthumus—his beautiful daughter’s illicit, low-born husband—Imogen flees into a Welsh forest that still rings with Britain’s legendary past. By turns comic, heroic and harrowing, this tale of gods and villains, lovers and warriors, brings the entire CSF company together onstage.

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.

Event Image The Comedy of Errors - Colorado Shakespeare Festival
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

By William Shakespeare
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.

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.

 “Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.”
Directed by Carolyn Howarth

God-like heroes, embattled kings, doomed love, and a sinister, snarky clown make Shakespeare’s epic of the Trojan War one of his greatest legends. Like grown-up versions of Romeo and Juliet all too familiar with life’s stark realities, the eponymous lovers face painful choices in this mythic mélange of drama, comedy and history.

"How hard it is to hide the sparks of nature!”
Directed by Jim Helsinger

Cymbeline is a vassal king of the mighty Roman Empire, but Britain herself remains a wild and untamed land in this mythic, idyllic romance. When the king banishes Posthumus—his beautiful daughter’s illicit, low-born husband—Imogen flees into a Welsh forest that still rings with Britain’s legendary past. By turns comic, heroic and harrowing, this tale of gods and villains, lovers and warriors, brings the entire CSF company together onstage.

Event Image The Comedy of Errors - Colorado Shakespeare Festival
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

By William Shakespeare
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.

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.

**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.

"How hard it is to hide the sparks of nature!”
Directed by Jim Helsinger

Cymbeline is a vassal king of the mighty Roman Empire, but Britain herself remains a wild and untamed land in this mythic, idyllic romance. When the king banishes Posthumus—his beautiful daughter’s illicit, low-born husband—Imogen flees into a Welsh forest that still rings with Britain’s legendary past. By turns comic, heroic and harrowing, this tale of gods and villains, lovers and warriors, brings the entire CSF company together onstage.

In this 5-week course, you will learn basic Hindi conversational skills in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.

God-like heroes, embattled kings, doomed love, and a sinister, snarky clown make Shakespeare’s epic of the Trojan War one of his greatest legends. Like grown-up versions of Romeo and Juliet all too familiar with life’s stark realities, the eponymous lovers face painful choices in this mythic mélange of drama, comedy and history.

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.

Dive into the heart of the boreal forest, under the polar lights, for an incomparable and unique experience!

This performance makes for an incredible evening with your special someone.  There will be food and beverages served before and after the show.  Doors open at 6:30pm. Show starts at 8:00pm.

 
Event Image Equivocation
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

By Bill Cain 
Directed by Wendy Franz

Event Image Troilus and Cressida
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

 “Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.”
Directed by Carolyn Howarth

God-like heroes, embattled kings, doomed love, and a sinister, snarky clown make Shakespeare’s epic of the Trojan War one of his greatest legends. Like grown-up versions of Romeo and Juliet all too familiar with life’s stark realities, the eponymous lovers face painful choices in this mythic mélange of drama, comedy and history.

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 Cymbeline
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

"How hard it is to hide the sparks of nature!”
Directed by Jim Helsinger

Cymbeline is a vassal king of the mighty Roman Empire, but Britain herself remains a wild and untamed land in this mythic, idyllic romance. When the king banishes Posthumus—his beautiful daughter’s illicit, low-born husband—Imogen flees into a Welsh forest that still rings with Britain’s legendary past. By turns comic, heroic and harrowing, this tale of gods and villains, lovers and warriors, brings the entire CSF company together onstage.

Event Image The Comedy of Errors - Colorado Shakespeare Festival
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

By William Shakespeare
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.

Affirmative Action and Higher Education
Wednesday, August 10, 2016
7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Eaton Humanities 150
University of Colorado Boulder

For decades now, college campuses have been under scrutiny for the way in which race and various other factors play a role in admissions and hiring decisions. With the latest decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, such practices seem likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

As part of the Western Civ Dialogue Series, leading philosophers, who have written on this subject and who represent a broad range of perspectives, will discuss the role that affirmative action should play within colleges and universities.

Panel participants:

  • Lawrence Blum, Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Education and Professor of Philosophy, UMass Boston)

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.

**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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Among the most mysterious and exotic objects in the Universe, Black Holes tantalize everyone that learns about them. These dark beasts are one of a few phenomenon out in the cosmos where the known laws of physics and general relativity break down. "Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity" explores the power and grace of these cosmic beasts. CU's own Dr. Andrew Hamilton was the science advisor for the program.
"Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity is for me the culmination of a dream many years in the making," said Hamilton. "The show marries science and art in a new way that compromises neither. In particular, the show breaks new ground in visualizing accurately what Einstein's equations predict about what really happens inside black holes. What actually happens looks nothing like, but is at least as fantastic as, any Hollywood rendering."
The program will be followed by a live talk by Dr. Andrew Hamilton, including a discussion of the recent discovery of gravitational waves.
Student Performance Showcase

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.

French 3
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

This fall we will continue into French III with a Comprehensible Input approach that leaves no adult learner behind. Students will experience language through its narrative and creative avenues in what is for many is an anxiety-reducing, naturalistic way of learning. Each lesson will focus on the repetition in multiple contexts of a very small handful of structures. By the end of eight weeks, students will be able to understand and respond (with short phrases andor appropriate body language) to questions about themselves and their classmates and will participate in the construction of stories based on realities close and not-so-close to home. 90 of this course will be in French. More reading and writing will be included in this course.

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.
