September 2017 Events In Boulder, Colorado

It’s that time of year again, where the final days of summer promptly vanish before autumn returns with the September Equinox. The month marks the beginning of another school year, an influx of college students from all over the country (and beyond), and as a saddle between summer and fall, a surfeit of events dedicated to two seasons in September. To make the most of the astronomical end of summer while preparing for the cosmic beginning of autumn, we’ve brought together some of the best events throughout Boulder. Here are our picks for this month of change:

Enjoy this new exhibition wherein Sherry Wiggins displays her travels to India to research the work of Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi.

Abstract and surreal, Sherry Wiggins’ work is not to be missed.

Visual Arts Lecture Series: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin D. Martin House: Save A Building, Save A City

When: September 26, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.

World famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin D. Martin House is recognized as one of Wright’s greatest early works, but that was not always the case; the house fell into disrepair for thirty years. Listen to Mr. Quinan chronicle the rise, fall, and rebirth of this testament to Wright’s early architectural prowess.

There’s so much going on in Boulder this September, be sure not to miss any of your favorite bands or artists by checking the schedules at Red Rocks Ampitheatre, Fox Theater, Boulder Theater, and Chautauqua Auditorium – to name a few.
