Hello Newsletter Readers,

Happy Wednesday! This week has been a chilly one...hopefully everyone is staying warm and enjoying snowy mountain views.

If you are looking for ways to stay busy this season, plan a day downtown! Grab your friends and take a cooking class at Food Lab, paint pottery at Color Me Mine or travel through history at the Museum of Boulder. Explore your artsy side at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and Ana's Art Gallery. Relax with a yoga class at Yoga Pearl or treat yourself to a spa day at one of downtown's many salons. There is no better time to pamper yourself than during these winter months!

Looking for spring volunteer opportunities? Volunteer for the Boulder International Film Festival, March 2 - 5! It's a fun way to hang out with friends or meet new ones. Plus, enjoy great perks as a volunteer including ticket vouchers, a BIFF t-shirt and badge and more...learn more and register!

The 11th annual Student Banner Project has begun! Featuring 42 new lamp pole banners created by incredible young artists from Columbine Elementary School, Casey Middle School and Boulder High School, these artworks adorn all four blocks of the Pearl Street Mall. This year's banner artists created their work to answer these thematic questions: What do you do in your life to lift your spirits? To keep you connected and happy? What brings you joy?

The Banner Project is presented by Boulder Arts Week, Boulder’s only large-scale, inclusive celebration of our community’s vibrant arts and cultural offerings, which takes place April 7 - 15, 2023.
