The extraordinary talent among our artists is amazing. I have met artists who show their artwork in many corners of the world and have been blown away by our new and emerging artists as well. It's impossible to pick a favorite but for the sake of variety, our "3-demensional" artists (i.e, jewelry, sculpting, furniture, pottery, turned wood, fiber) are simply the best. How lucky that we live in a community where these artists are our next door neighbors. Forget Santa Fe...the best artists are right here in Boulder.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Smart and super organized. It takes a wide variety of hats to run a non-profit. Our dedicated staff has to be fluent in finances, sales, project management, HR and graphic design. You won't see this kind of dedication in the corporate world.

The Open Studios fall event is always a cool weather highlight for me! I love seeing my favorite local painters in action and having the chance to interact with them about their process. The experience is always so creative and inspiring. I'm also delighted that Open Studios is branching out with new educational programs like Clementine Studio and the 29th street Art Fair. I rely on Open Studios to be a strong supporter of the visual arts in Boulder believe their educational programs make Boulder a well rounded, special destination for the arts.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Helping to bring it's arts education mission to the forefront of community awareness. Open Studios has great potential to share important arts education opportunities with children and adults in Boulder, and I am thrilled to be a part of the process.
