Together, let's enhance Boulder's CULTURAL amenities.
Ensure an engaged and informed public
North Boulder Library Branch
The tiny NoBo Corner Library at the intersection of Broadway & Yarmouth is one of the busiest spots in North Boulder. With only 570 square feet it serves 45,000 visitors a year from some of the city's most diverse neighborhoods. Once completed, the new North Boulder Library Branch will be a complete, full-service branch library with community meeting space, room for partner organizations, and connections to draw the community together.
KGNU Community Radio
KGNU Community Radio has over 240,000 monthly on-air and on-line listeners. KGNU envisions a more adequate space that attends to the growing needs of an increasingly young and diverse community. In order to actively engage in the production and dissemination of information, they will add a second floor to their existing structure, offering a permanent media makers training space and community cultural space. This expansion will modernize the current facility, turning it into a 21st century, energy efficient, permanent media training and multicultural Community Media Center.

Keep Boulder vibrant and interesting
The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is a vibrant destination on the east side of the civic area. One of the state's premier locations for the exploration of contemporary art, BMoCA serves over 30,000 visitors each year. Funding from the 2017 ballot measure will support the first phase of an expansion and renovation of the current facility, which is necessary for the organization to sustain its current levels of growth and provide the best service for the community. The project includes upgrades to the interior of the current building that will honor its history and architectural significance. It will enable BMoCA to expand community uses and education programs while also improving and expanding its exhibit space.

Funding from 2M & 2N will allow the city to continue its investment in public art throughout the community. Final projects will be chosen during the 2018-19 Public Art Implementation process and will reflect the best opportunities within the available funds and sites. A mix of locations will be considered. This funding will continue to set the foundation for an established art program that is line with similar communities.
create a Studio arts education center
Studio Arts Boulder
Studio Arts Boulder provides over 25,000 hours of community art education programming each year at the historic Pottery Lab. The “studio arts”are those art forms that require equipment, facilities, safety precautions, and instruction which are beyond the means of most individuals. Studio Arts Boulder has an opportunity to build a custom-made facility dedicated to affordable community studio art education that is open to all members of the community. The new facility will house ceramics (in addition to programs at the Pottery Lab), woodworking, printmaking, and other flexible studio space as well as administrative, gallery, and event space.
