    For this year’s Boulder Arts Week, the Boulder Shambhala Center is hosting a pop-up art show and live event co-organized by Shambhala member, Angie Eng and Shambhala events coordinator, Mary Brooks.


    Alexandra Shenpen and her Ikebana group will design and install a giant ikebana outdoors, in front of the Shambhala Center. The end of the exhibit will be followed by a live music event featuring Shambhala members James Thorpe and Laurie Amodeo in their band, Glitter Architects, and a guest jazz musician, John Gunther.  


    20 local Boulder artists exhibit painting, photography, sound art, interactive art, and video inspired by one of three wisdom quotes  local poet, Gary Allen, selected from Dharma Art by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. 
    "Creating a work of art is not a harmless thing….Art is extraordinarily powerful and important.  It challenges people’s lives.  So there are two choices: either you create black magic to turn people’s heads, or your create some kind of basic sanity."
    "The only magic that exist is this life, this world, this particular phenomena we are all experiencing right this moment.  Right now, right here, you are in this magic….Magic is direct and personal and lingers in our state of being. It is choiceless magic."
    "Being an ‘artist’ is not an occupation, it is your life, your whole being.  From the time you wake up in the morning, when the buzzer in your clock rings to get you up, until you go to bed, every perception your experience is an expression of vision."
