You Will Feel Inspired by the Marvelous Artwork of Two Nicaraguan Artists
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.
Boulder’s original sister city, Friendship City Projects, presents the inspirational, healing, and transcendent art of two Nicaraguan artists: Marlon Moreno and José Ortiz Bracamonte. Marlon Moreno is one of the founders of the volunteer-run, grassroots art school, Taller Artístico Xuchialt. From its inception, this school has championed art as a form of resilience for youth enabling them to envision and create a better future.
José Ortiz Bracamonte’s family has been creating pottery in the traditional style for generations, and from that legacy, he pushes artistic boundaries. He won the prestigious Ruben Darío Gold Medal in 2008 – the highest honor awarded to Nicaraguan artists. His works celebrate artistry and deep community engagement.
All art displayed will be for sale and proceeds will go directly to the art school and art coop, to support Nicaraguan artists, art education and positive community development. Admission is $10 for adults; $8 for seniors, college students and youth (2-17); and free for Museum of Boulder Members and children and under 2. Don’t miss out on the chance to view “The Art of Resilience: Nicaraguan Perspectives”!
Although we provide the utmost luxury at Apex 5510 Apartments in Boulder, Colorado, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
