Month of Modern

Colorado has always been on the frontier, and Boulder continues that proud tradition by being recognized as leading the way in modern art, design, architecture, and culture. During four weeks of featured speakers, fireside chats, film nights, and provocative panel discussions aimed to educate, inspire and delight, Month of Modern will showcase Boulder as one of the nation’s most vibrant hubs of modern design. Presented by Modern in Denver magazine, HMH Architecture + Interiors, and Annabel Media, we’re extremely excited to once again be sponsoring this thought-provoking event.

With a month of festivities, you can be sure that at least one (if not all) event will pique your interest. Here are a few great options for you to choose from:

Modern Materials for Contemporary Design

When: October 10, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Where: The Artisan Shop

Focused on the evolution of modern design materials, this hour long educational session will touch on such design topics as interior and kitchen applications for aluminum, glass, and high gloss acrylic. In discussing these materials and their use, design options will be explained, as well as criteria for when and why you should use certain materials over others. Enjoy hands on displays from Element Designs, in addition to refreshments in the morning and wine or beer for the evening session.

Demystifying the Building Process

When: October 17, 2017 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Where: Galvanize

It’s no surprise that building a new home is a complex process, but many people are unaware of the multi-staged collaborative process that goes into designing and building one. In this panel discussion, myths of the building process will be busted and the (at times) surprising truths will be revealed. The panel features an architect, interior designer, landscape architect, builder, and homeowner who will shed light gleaned from their own experience building a new home. Also on the panel is yours truly, representing how a realtor interacts throughout the phases of homebuilding. We are truly looking forward to speaking at this event and can’t wait to share our decades of experience with you.

Sherwin Williams Colormix™

When: October 19, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Where: The Artisan Shop

Drawing from emerging global trends, the Sherwin-Williams 2018 Colormix® Color Forecast predicts the colors that will drive conversation and inspiration for the coming year, offering new perspectives on societal influences and their impact on color and design. The culmination of this work is three unique color palettes that are sure to be at the vanguard of color and design in the coming year.

Regardless of whether your interest lies with modern design, architectural initiatives, home building, or graphic art, events from the four week long Month of Modern are sure to leave you with a new perspective on what’s shaping the industry today and in the years to come. We are proud to be a sponsor of this local Boulder event and hope to see you there. Be sure to acquire your tickets to each of the discussions soon as they will sell out.
