Office of Arts and Culture welcomes new mural
The Office of Arts and Culture, in collaboration with And Art Space and the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation and Transportation departments, welcomes a new mural by Anna Charney, located at the 6th Street Underpass of the Boulder Creek Trail. This mural demonstrates the city’s commitment to exploring opportunities for new and unexpected aesthetic experiences across our community. Boulder’s pedestrian trails are highly traveled assets, boasting incredible natural beauty. However, the underpasses can be dark and uninspiring. This artwork along the 6th Street Underpass dramatically changes the experience and invites people to encounter art in an unexpected place.
Colorado Springs Fire Department request
After severe winds earlier this week brought down tree limbs and whole trees homeowners may feel inclined to burn these items in outdoor fire pits. The Colorado Springs Fire Department would like to remind homeowners not to burn these items in either outdoor fire pits or indoor fireplaces until they are “seasoned” and dry. Please allow tree limbs and split logs to dry for six to 12 months, depending on climate and wood species. Burning wood when it is “unseasoned” or “green wood” can produce nuisance smoke. Please cut and stack this wood allowing it to dry properly before burning or dispose of it through other means.
