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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

2:00 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.

Beginning Hindi
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

In this 5-week course, you will learn basic Hindi conversational skills in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. You will learn how to introduce yourself, how to find your way (google maps don't work so well in India!) and be able to order food in a restaurant. You will also learn about Indian culture, Bollywood, Indian food and festivals. The goal is to feel comfortable with the language and have fun with it.

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.

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 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.

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

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.

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.
