Successful Art Opening Tuesday; Grand Opening Is Wednesday for BJCC

Over 100 people turned out Tuesday evening for fine art, fine wine, and fine shmoozing to welcome the new Boulder JCC’s first art exhibit, CONFLUENCE, featuring local artists Monica Aiello, Painter, and Tyler Aiello, Sculptor. Both artists are represented by Space Gallery. Several works by each artist adorned the walls of the BJCC’s lobby space, to both the right and left of the main entrance to the building.

Wine tasting was conducted by both La Encantada and Brava, and cheese sampling was provided by Alfalfa’s.  See more pictures here.

All of this is merely a warm up for Wednesday evening’s Grand Opening celebration begining at 5:00 pm, including a massive ribbon cutting at 6:30 pm in which all of the expected 1,000 guests are invited to participate.  There will be food trucks providing food to purchase, along with tours, games, kids activities and a performance by the vocal group FACE.

See you there!
