Outbreak by Nicole Banowetz

April 5 – June 12, Conoid, Main Library
The forms in Outbreak are based on microscopic bacteria and viruses. These forms are beautiful, complex, playful and menacing as they replicate and fly around the conoid, seemingly trying to escape into the world. The work makes us question our complex relationships to the microscopic world. This exhibition is being presented in conjunction with CU’s Conference on World Affairs, which runs from April 9-13 with several sessions taking place at the library.

Jack Collom Teaching kids in Vienna

A Slow Flash of Light

April 6 – May 27, Arapahoe Ramp
Jack Collom (1931-2017) began teaching in poets-in-the-schools programs in the mid-1970s nationwide (and abroad), a practice he continued for the rest of his life. He taught thousands of school children of all grades in Boulder County and wrote the book Moving Windows about teaching poetry to children. This exhibition is a tribute to his work, in conjunction with the BVSD showcase in the Canyon Gallery.
