Drawings from CU Art Museum made from the 1200s to today are featured in this exhibition, curated by a team of graduate students in CU’s museum practicum seminar. Draw Me In encourages close looking and conversation. As viewers study techniques employed by artists working in a variety of media, they are asked to engage with traditional conceptions about the art of drawing in order to come to a deeper understanding of the practice. How has drawing been defined and valued by different makers, collectors and scholars? And what is drawing today?

Millie Chen: Four Recollections features a new installation conceived during her artist-residency at CU Boulder alongside three large-scale drawing installations created between 2015 and 2017. Significant events of injustice and social unrest reshape Millie’s memory of her formative years. A Slinky, bell bottoms, psychedelic designs, among other cultural touchstones of the 1970s, are integrated in her graphic works with those of protest and human-perpetuated violence occurring around the world.

Millie’s new installation, egg MUSEUM, conveys the hidden histories of objects. Egg tempera studies of details extracted from a black-and-white photograph of her mother and grandmother taken in a field in China in 1939 are juxtaposed with objects in our collection. The artist is drawn to these objects because of their uncertain provenance and origins, speculating that they have come from areas associated with the Silk Road routes.

Artist-in-residence program and exhibition curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.
The artist-in-residence program and exhibition are generously supported by CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Light is an amazing tool for life as we know it, and be used to unlock the secrets of one of the most complex networks known to man, the human brain. In 2013, the BRAIN initiative was launched to develop new technologies to explore how the brain's cells and circuits interact and understand the complex links between brain function and behavior. This talk will explore exciting developments in optics and neuroscience that have made advances under the BRAIN initiative possible: lasers and light emitting diodes, used for communications, medicine, industry and science, and optogenetics, with great promise for study, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disease.

Presented by: Professor Juliet Gopinath

International Women's Day is Thursday, March 8 and we're honoring the day with an Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon.

Please join us and our friends from CU Boulder Libraries and the Boulder Feminist Initiative for a fun, inclusive one-day event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts!
Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a gender gap, and its content is skewed by the lack of women’s voices. This represents an alarming absence in an important repository of shared knowledge, especially as our society is increasingly beset by rampant misinformation. Join us in changing this! We’re gathering women and allies together to celebrate women's cultural achievements and edit Wikipedia articles about women in the arts.

Please note: participants do not need to stay fr the full duration and are encouraged to drop in and step out at any time. All are welcome, and no Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; tutoring will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers. Women editors, especially women of color and diverse gender expression, are encouraged to attend.
Please bring a laptop if possible. There will be a limited number of computers available.

Millie Chen: Four Recollections features a new installation conceived during her artist-residency at CU Boulder alongside three large-scale drawing installations created between 2015 and 2017. Significant events of injustice and social unrest reshape Millie’s memory of her formative years. A Slinky, bell bottoms, psychedelic designs, among other cultural touchstones of the 1970s, are integrated in her graphic works with those of protest and human-perpetuated violence occurring around the world.

Millie’s new installation, egg MUSEUM, conveys the hidden histories of objects. Egg tempera studies of details extracted from a black-and-white photograph of her mother and grandmother taken in a field in China in 1939 are juxtaposed with objects in our collection. The artist is drawn to these objects because of their uncertain provenance and origins, speculating that they have come from areas associated with the Silk Road routes.

Artist-in-residence program and exhibition curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.
The artist-in-residence program and exhibition are generously supported by CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

In this lecture, Distinguished Professor Daniel Scheeres from Smead Aerospace Engineering Sciences describes cutting-edge asteroid research and exploration. Most of us know that asteroids frequently pass close to or impact the Earth, very occasionally with devastating consequences for life. But the story of these small bodies is much more complex: they are fascinating small worlds that change over their lifetimes, repeatedly dividing into pieces that can escape, form stable binary systems or come back together again.

Millie Chen: Four Recollections features a new installation conceived during her artist-residency at CU Boulder alongside three large-scale drawing installations created between 2015 and 2017. Significant events of injustice and social unrest reshape Millie’s memory of her formative years. A Slinky, bell bottoms, psychedelic designs, among other cultural touchstones of the 1970s, are integrated in her graphic works with those of protest and human-perpetuated violence occurring around the world.

Millie’s new installation, egg MUSEUM, conveys the hidden histories of objects. Egg tempera studies of details extracted from a black-and-white photograph of her mother and grandmother taken in a field in China in 1939 are juxtaposed with objects in our collection. The artist is drawn to these objects because of their uncertain provenance and origins, speculating that they have come from areas associated with the Silk Road routes.

Artist-in-residence program and exhibition curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.
The artist-in-residence program and exhibition are generously supported by CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.
