Take a walk down the Boulder Creek Path to experience wabi sabi, the Japanese aesthetic of appreciating the simple, humble, and authentic. We’ll seek scenes and objects that speak of impermanence and the seasoning of time and elements. Then express your inspiration through creation of a wabi sabi artistic piece in a medium of your choice - collage, drawing, water color, photography, illustrated haiku.

Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) presents Art Inspired by the Land, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Boulder residents’ passage of America’s first dedicated open space sales tax, which has helped the city to acquire and protect more than 45,000 acres of open space. An immersive art installation designed by Studio TJOA will highlight artworks submitted by community members. Visit the Boulder Public Library Canyon Gallery August 5 - September 10 to traverse the canyon installation and appreciate artwork inspired by the land around Boulder.
