Update: In a salute to “the mindful life,” Boulder ArtDistrict will perform “Roll Out.” A meandering spectacle in honor of alternative transportation, this lively traveling performance piece will grace the alleys, sidewalks, and bike lanes of downtown Boulder, proclaiming the commencement of elephantjournal.com’s “Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis” featuring Top Chef Hosea Rosenberg, John Friend, Paper Bird, Brad Feld, Threadless and Boulder Ballet. ArtDistrict offers this participatory artwork as a playful means by which to engage the community in dialogue and reflection regarding our nonsensical dependence on motor vehicles.

ArtDistrict will also install “Good TV,” a site-specific work setting the stage for “Walk the Talk.”
