All displays were created for this installation by members of the community coming together to create community. Ages ranged from 8 – 91 at monthly “knit-in” sessions hosted by the Boulder Library.
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love the library and getting a library card is always my first stop when I move to a new town. In the suburbs of Chicago were I lived for many years, my friends joked it was my version of “Cheers!” Meaning it’s the place where everybody knows my name.
The Boulder Colorado Library has a beautiful gallery space which features a new exhibit every month or six weeks. Currently on display is the handmade sweater exhibit called “Wish You Were Here.” These are a few of my favorites in the exhibit. I’m a frequent visitor to the library so I’ve seen this exhibit in solitude, with wool spinners gathered for a demonstration, and crowded during planned events. I’m sorry it will be leaving soon, but I look forward to what’s next.

The spectacular Mountain views of Breckenridge Colorado are enough to attract crowds no matter the season. But the first weekend of June each year brings artists from around the world to inspire and dazzle those lucky enough to visit.
The helium filled kites seen in the first several photos were illuminated with different colors and “danced” to the accompanying string musicians.
Nearby, on a tiny island in the creek we enjoyed the cello playing at dusk with swallows flying overhead and trout coming to the surface finding their bedtime snacks.
Other displays included a variety of colorful umbrella sculptures that were on bridges and other areas around town providing a wonderful backdrop for photo ops.
Angel wings that were lit up at night allowed those of us who think we’re angelic to try them on for size.
Another crowd pleaser were seesaws big enough for a whole family to enjoy that also were illuminated at night and made music as they went up and down.
A few of my favorites from a recent visit to the museum. The first picture was from an animated work. The second is “O’Keefe after Whistler” by David P Bradley and brings two different artists together in a fascinating way.
Several others are from the “Animals in Art” exhibit which is dedicated to our never-ending attraction to and the need to connect animals .

Dali is famous for his mustache, the details in his paintings, and his ability to create art that changes based on where the viewer is standing. The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg Florida is home to an impressive collection within a beautifully designed building. It’s able to withstand a category 5 hurricane, and that’s not the most striking feature. The pictures in this post give you a taste of our afternoon at the museum.
Walking in Andersonville this morning, I was lucky enough to see this beautiful tunnel of mosaics and murals.
