This Boulder Exhibit Will Make You Proud of Your Hometown – Check It Out on Saturday

Ever wondered what living in Boulder would have been like ten, twenty, or even 50 years ago? If so, join the Museum of Boulder for the institution’s newest exhibit, Boulder Through the Decades! See it for yourself this Saturday, August 31st, beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Boulder Through the Decades, comprising over 40 works by artist Jonathan Machen in oil, watercolor, pen-and-ink, and plein-air pencil and chalk studies, is a wide-ranging artistic study of Boulder’s natural and architectural environment. Boulder has been Jonathan’s home since he arrived from Los Alamos, New Mexico as a freshman at the University of Colorado in 1982.

A love of both architecture and nature has inspired Jonathan to sink deeply into both the natural and the human environments found in Boulder. In this show, Jonathan has selected many studies and finished works of architectural gems that define Boulder, as well as a number of lesser-known locations, with perspectives mostly gained by exploration on a bicycle or on foot.

Machen depicts the Boulder Theater, Fox Theater and Tulagis, Boulder Cafe, East and North Boulder Recreation Centers, Boulder Public Library, Pasta Jays, The Southern Sun, the Museum of Boulder and the First Congregational Church, Chautauqua Auditorium, The County Courthouse, Arnett-Fullen House, Boulder Bandshell, The Laughing Goat Cafe, Ras Kassas Ethiopian Restaurant, and so much more.

The Museum of Boulder provides engaging educational experiences for people to explore the continuing history of the Boulder region. The Museum collects, preserves, and presents Boulder history in order to connect to the past, provide a context for the present, and inspire a vision for the future.

This art show will make you proud to call Boulder home! Don’t miss Boulder Through the Decades by Jonathan Machen this Saturday! Admission starts at $8 and can be purchased online at www.museumofboulder.org.
