Don’t miss out on the latest exhibitions to grace the gallery walls at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art! With two stunning shows that invite visitors to immerse themselves in the work and vision of two incredible creators, you can kick off the Spring season with an enriching day of art.
BMOCA is currently hosting Nathan Abels: History of the Future, a collection of this Colorado artist and teacher’s awe-inspiring work that embeds contemporary technologies and icons in scenes of faith, ritual, and religion. Abels was raised religious in the Midwest, and many of his works capture a suspended moment, reflecting the sense of awe found through the ancients, religion, or advances in innovation. His art asks the viewer to assume the role of anthropologist and see the correlations between the prophets and idols of the past with cell phone towers and drones of today.
Rounding out the debut Spring exhibitions is Wopo Holup: Endless Places, Present, a new show presenting artist Wopo Holup’s topographical drawings. This posthumous exhibition illustrates her explorations of vast cartographies. Wopo Holup was an accomplished teacher, public artist, studio artist, and widely respected in the art community. She was awarded over two dozen public art commissions across the nation, regularly exhibited, and was featured in The New York Times, Sculpture Magazine, Rocky Mountain News, and additional publications. Much like her subject matter now on display at the museum, Holup was an artist of mighty strength who presented her self and subject matter through a deliberate calm. It’s a striking collection that perfectly complements all the riveting works at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art!
