In the first few days after the start of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, we shared a post headlined "Colorado's Won More 2018 Winter Olympic Medals Than 81 Countries" to celebrate the achievements of the state's first two medalists, snowboarders Red Gerard and Arielle Gold.

4 years ago by Lila Thulin
There are more than 1000 ants in the Boulder basement art gallery where Jacob Lemanski sits cross-legged, explaining how he got from biking across continents to building ant farms. All four walls of the room host what Lemanski calls Ant Spaces: thin layers of soil and brightly-hued sand set between glass and illuminated by LEDs that change color. The ants tunnel through the soil, creating slowly-shifting patterns in the dirt to reveal the background image of the Carina Nebula. In a word, it's mesmerizing.
