The Creative City
Kicking off MOM22, we partnered with NoBo Art District and StreetWise Arts to present The Creative City – an exciting and vibrant exhibition celebrating Boulder. Designers and artists were invited to produce a 24×48″ board – each utilizing the same theme: DESIGN FOR CHANGE. The exhibition was held during NoBo’s First Friday art walk on 9/2/2022. The event provided a socially-distanced indoor/outdoor setting featuring the sights and sounds of the Art District with local artists, food vendors, musicians and free family-friendly activities! Another chance to see the exhibit was at The Dairy during our Month of Modern, Powered By Pecha Kucha event.
Attendees received one ticket to vote for the board they liked best and one artist will receive a People’s Choice Award, designed and presented by Todd Reed , which was announced the evening of the Month of Modern Wrap Party on September 29, 2022. The boards are being converted into Corn Hole Sets to be auctioned off at the Wrap Party, with proceeds going to our Non Profit Beneficiaries.
“I’m involved in Month of Modern primarily to show my enthusiasm for community and design, ” Reed explains. “Having the award go to one of these artists is special for me as I firmly believe in cultivating a space for new and creative design that challenges what we are familiar with.”
