Daily Camera article

For Earth Day we are pleased to announce ‘The Boulder Bunny Rabbit Art Challenge’ as the debut exhibit of Boulder’s open air gallery. 12″ x 12″ art plaques on the exterior side and back walls of buildings and storefronts near downtown Pearl Street.

The ‘Bunny Rabbit Art Challenge’ is a special community art gesture to spark some positivity and creativity in this difficult COVID period. With Boulder nestled against the Rockies, we are constantly reminded that we are interconnected with the animals and plants. Both real bunny rabbits and their representations will soon be popping up all over Boulder starting on Earth Day April 22, 2020. To elicit smiles from locals on their fresh air walks, twenty-eight local artists  from the age of 3 to 70’s have offered their creativity and positivity on 12” x 12” plaques installed on the exterior walls of central Boulder. The works range from paintings, mosaics, found object, recycled materials and e-waste.
