Habitat for Artists BOULDER

HABITAT for ARTISTS (HFA) is a an artist run group that explores the nature of creativity, the role of the artist in our communities and how to create dialog with a new audience.

HFA BOULDER will construct a c. 6'x6' temporary studio (habitat) out of reclaimed materials and place it in a public space. We have a location secured - 3960 Broadway, in the courtyard immediately east of Lucky's Market. We invite artists from the community to work in the studios (for mini, 1-week residencies) and evolve different work practices, engaging with the public and posing questions relevant to sustainable practice.

Artists will submit a proposal for the project they would like to complete during their mini-residency. The focus is to do something new and different and to engage the public (including children) in the creative process. Projects during past iterations of HFA have been things like a lost and found sketch booth, a mending wall where the artist asked passersby if there was anything in their lives or the world that needed mending, stitched it to a square of fabric and added to a wall quilt, a sculptural statement on ocean pollution, generating discussion about how plastics are used and discarded, and many more.
