The Pearl Street Mall is a popular destination for tourists visiting Boulder and for students attending the nearby University of Colorado Boulder. The mall hosts a blend of locally-owned businesses and national chain stores and restaurants. It is also home to much of Boulder’s nightlife. During the summer months, Pearl Street Mall is the stage for a number of street performers, including musicians.
The Pearl Street Mall is filled with public art, including numerous fountains and sculptures as well as a sandbox for children, a stylized map of Boulder County and a number of small gardens which are planted with a variety of flowers and trees, most notably tulips in the spring.
The Mall is at the heart of downtown Boulder, in the western part of present-day Boulder. The area is a historic district and many of the buildings are among the oldest in Boulder. And guess who just had a new piece installed? I don’t mean to brag, but… did you guess it was me? I am so excited and honored to have been selected by the city of Boulder to showcase my artwork at the park. The ribbon cutting is Saturday, October 7, 2017. Bring the kids, some snacks, and a picnic blanket!
