The Gold Hill Art Project brings together a series of site-specific contemporary art installations situated in cabins and gardens in the historic mining town of Gold Hill. Three Black Cube Artist Fellows – Molly Berger, Jennifer Ling Datchuk and Eric Stewart – have created new works that respond to local history and the surrounding landscape. Collectively these installations bring together layers of the past and present, providing visitors with alternative ways of seeing this unique place. This project is curated by Black Cube’s very first Curator-in-Residence, Laurie Britton Newell.
Gold Hill is situated at 8300 ft. elevation in the Rocky Mountains northwest of the city of Boulder and surrounded by Pine and Aspen forests with striking mountain views. It is a historic gold mining town and National Historic Site, which currently serves as the hometown for 230 families. The town also features the oldest continuously operating public school in Colorado, Gold Hill Elementary School.
