The Boulder City Arts Council
The Boulder City Arts Council is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to building the community through the arts. The Boulder City Arts Council has recently completed a Cultural Plan which is the community’s road map to help guide the Arts Council while working with the community to achieve their vision.
Anyone who is interested in joining the Arts Council, or contributing to future projects, please contact Phil Esser, Boulder City Arts Council President at 293-9984.
When I found Mignon, it was still morning on the playground. This gifted Art teacher was covered in concentration and grey grout. Ms. Slentz said she has mainly worked these past three months with fifth graders but the other grades have participated as well. She smiled as she remembered all the different little hands transforming this product left from a school remodel job, into Vincent Van Gogh’s, “Starry, Starry Night”. What a great recycle idea. A process which included many different firings to apply the eight different colors of blue over the grey tiles. A sweet magic mixed the effort into all the swirling colors.
Coming soon on this same playground, we will see the efforts of our own Emily Wheeless. Her project on tile is in the works. Truly Art, straight from the heart. Treat yourself and remember to check in with the office on your way back to the playground.
FYI: March 30th, 5:30 to 7:00. Selected student pieces will be on display with Storytelling, Dance, Chorus, a Marimba Ensemble, and cookies. Lots of cookies. See you there.
