BASELINEs site-specific indoor installation, called Chicken Shack Village, includes three unique student-designed chicken coops, as well as an easy DIY kit created specifically for backyard chicken farmers. The installation goes on view during an opening reception on September 25, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. But on September 26 from 10 a.m. to noon, the students will also host a community Rural Art/Urban Agriculture symposium, with speakers, a panel discussion and why the hell not live chickens.
Other fall shows on view at BMoCA include Andrea Modica: Fountain, a series of photographs documenting family life on a Fountain, Colorado, slaughterhouse farm, and the Halloween-ready The Surface and Beneath, featuring carnival folk art and paintings by Heather Wilcoxon; all three exhibits continue through January 16, 2010. BMoCA is at 1750 13th Street in Boulder; for details, go to www.bmoca.com or call 303-443-2122.
