Foster more positive community art in Boulder

Creative Catalyzer, a new non-profit cultural leadership organization based in Boulder, is collaborating with building owners and local businesses to bring positivity with an open air gallery during this difficult period. We’ve asked 30 locals to create 12″ x 12″ rabbit art works that we will install on the outside of buildings in downtown Boulder. Similar to real rabbits, they are not out in the open, but hidden around corners; All of them are strategically placed in inconspicuous spots, such as back alleys, the sides of buildings or peaking out in store windows. These art works will be on view from April 21 through summer so that people out for a walk can appreciate this creative community effort.

Please read the article in the Daily Camera or the Press Release.
