The Boulder History Museum is planning a pop up display for September 2014 to commemorate the One Year Anniversary of the 2013 Boulder Flood. The two week display entitled, Flood Reflections: One Year Later, will be located at the Museum's downtown location at 2205 Broadway. We will open the doors to the public over the Flood Anniversary weekend: Friday, September 12th 3-9; Saturday, September 13th 10-7; Sunday, September 14th 12-5. The display will also be available for viewing prior to our Flood Reflections Program Series that will take place 7pm at our downtown location (2205 Broadway) on September 9th, 11th, 15th and 17th.
Our primary goal for this pop up Flood Reflections display is to bring the Boulder Community together in conversation through stories, photographs, videos and objects. It is the Museums goal to bring different people and perspectives to one central gathering place, enabling a democratic type of public curation.
With this in mind, the Boulder History Musem is currently seeking exhibit items for the display (objects and photographs along a narrative) that help tell the story of the 2013 Flood experience. If you are interested in donating an artifact or photograph to the permanent Museum Collection, or by loan to the temporary display, please email our Collections Assistant, Kristen Lewis, and let us know what you would like to contribute and why.
Below are just some examples of the Flood damaged items that have been donated to the Museum for this pop up display.
