Ellen Kingman Fisher: Hill's Gold - Chautauqua Community House, Boulder, 900 Baseline Rd, Boulder CO 80302
Colorado Territory 1863: The Colorado gold rush was over; mining was in shambles; the Civil War still raged and Indian uprisings on the Great Plains made travel dangerous. Nevertheless, Nathaniel P. Hill was captivated by the rough frontier and tempted by William Gilpin’s invitation to investigate his land for gold and silver. Against his better judgment, Hill left his family and job as a chemistry professor at Brown University to work for the Colorado Territory’s former governor. Hill was a natural entrepreneur who saw opportunity in the new land and did not let risk or failure daunt him. The result was nothing short of a revolutionary boost to the fledgling Colorado mining industry and the rerouting of his and his family’s fortunes.

Monet as a Draftsman: Between Drawing and Pictorial Invention - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204
The reproduction of fleeting natural impressions played a central role in the art of Claude Monet (1840-1926). Like no other Impressionist, he explored the topography and the specific lighting moods of different locations, from the metropolis of Paris to the remote Seine villages of Vétheuil and Giverny. This lecture by Marianne Mathieu will explore the evolution of Monet's art from the 1850s to the 1920s with a focus on the places - both at home and on the road - from which he drew inspiration for his painting.

Living the Righteous Slacklife - Chautauqua Community House, Boulder, 900 Baseline Rd, Boulder CO 80302
In 2009, while studying physics at the Colorado School of Mines, Mickey Wilson discovered the sport of slacklining. After finishing his master’s degree in solar energy physics, he came to a fork in the road. Mickey had the opportunity to chase a dream, but it meant leaving behind or setting aside his education and a potential career in solar energy. He chose to become a professional slackliner. Many things ensued: competitions, base jumping, rope swings, space net weddings, world championships, performances, adventures, the Ellen Show, Good Morning America, Ford commercials, injuries, ski lift rescues, slacklove and slacklife. How does one chase a dream and remain balanced? How does one change paths in life? How does one work hard and play hard? How does one return to a scientific field they studied a decade ago? Hopefully, this story will help answer these questions.
