There’s nothing I love more than an art party. Why? Perhaps ’cause I’m frequently accused of 1) being an unofficial mayor of Boulder or 2) having ADHD. Either way, I love having a half-dozen fun light meaningful conversations a minute, whether it’s at the Farmer’s Market or what. But there’s something about art parties that raises the bar, bringing culture and a higher purpose to those otherwise shallow-water conversations. I’ve known Erica, one of the organizers of the below, a little bit for a long time, and for those of you lucky enough to be in Boulder, Colorado in June, here’s something to add to your calendar. I’ll see you there. ~ WL, ed.
