The Boulder Tattoo Project, a large-scale community artwork, is a collaboration between partners-in-art Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova, and Chelsea Pohl. Kurt and Kremena live and work in Lexington, KY. Both of them teach at Transylvania University. To find out more about their art, visit kurtandkremena.com. A native of Lexington, Chelsea is the founder and director of Locheart Arts in Boulder, CO, where she lives with her husband and two kids.
The Boulder Tattoo Project is the second of its kind in the nation. It is a spinoff on the original, The Lexington Tattoo Project. What started as a Facebook request for Lexington, KY residents to have the words of a love poem to their city inked on their bodies became a local phenomenon and quickly garnered national attention.
Now people who call Boulder home have become the canvas of an artwork created by the Kentucky-based artists–the same artists who created the Lexington Tattoo Project just one year earlier.
This project funded in part by a grants from the Boulder Arts Commission, an agency of the Boulder City Council, and the Knight Foundation.
