Art of Data – Exhibit

This art exhibit, at the Boulder Public Library, shows a variety of data represented through art.

As these photographs demonstrate, artists took different information and created unique ways to share it. Looking at weather, population distribution, water, and other statistics combined with their own creativity, led to this interesting event.

Note; This is only a portion of what is displayed.

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.

Wish You Were Here

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.
