Bloomin' Arts (est. 2010) is a non-profit formed to integrate the art of urban gardening throughout Boulder County. Bloomin' Arts plans to launch "Organic" Art in Public Places in the City of Boulder in early summer 2014. Our first year, our goal was to place artistically rendered planters with seasonal gardens around the Twenty Ninth Street Mall in Boulder, CO. Our debut featured "the gardener as artist." Ultimately, we are planning to expand our event to all of Boulder as enthusiasm spreads. This annual event will showcase the collective talents of local artists, garden designers, as well as garden enthusiasts. We advocate for the access & enjoyment of the visual arts for all, ages 1 to 100!

So please,

"don't hurry, don't worry, you're only here for a short visit, so be sure to smell the flowers along the way."

- Creed attributed to Walter Hagen, American Golfer

This summer 2014, we have secured the promise of 14 planter locations along Twenty Ninth Street Mall through their gracious management team. In the coming years, we hope to coordinate directly with Downtown Boulder & City of Boulder Parks & Recreation to gain additional planter locations along Pearl Street, Boulder Park Sites and along locals' favorite streets & pathways. We hope our event will gradually spread and bring more seasonal color citywide.

Our success relies on many hands. Volunteers are needed for chores such as planting & weeding to keep the planters beautiful all season long. We will secure sponsorship for artist stipends, garden materials and upkeep of the installations throughout the growing season.
