Fresh A.I.R. Show Artists In Recovery Displaying Their Work




The Fresh A.I.R. Show: Artists In Recovery is an ongoing project conceived and directed by Michael Hamers. The main message is one of strength, hope and joy that many have discovered through their Artwork and the process of addiction recovery. Our audience will be reached through public art shows, creative performances, and local lectures. The inaugural art show will be showing the entire month of January 2014 at the Firehouse Art Center at 4th and Coffman in Longmont, CO.  The Reception Party is on Friday, January 10th from 6–9 pm.




From painting, mixed media, photography, jewelry and more, this mini-show features a group of 10 local artists, most with established reputations, with a passion for life and art. This first show’s theme is “Out of the Black and Into the Blue”, the artistic interpretation of awakening and rebirth – of second chances. The future calendar of Fresh A.I.R. events for 2014-15 is in the planning and will take place in public venues in Boulder County. “Faith is our greatest gift; it’s sharing with others our greatest responsibility.”  Come visit with the artists and maybe even take a piece home with you.  Mike can be reached at 303-527-1222 and the website is at

City Rangers have a relatively quiet week, and other OSMP news


Rangers responded to:

• South Boulder Peak on a report of a lost hiker.

Rangers worked with RMR to find the hiker and get her back down safely.

• A report of a private citizen illegally grazing their horses on the Abbott property.

The private citizen set up water tanks and hay bales on the Abbott property.


A summons was issued with a mandatory court appearance.

• A report of an injured climber on the Dome. The climber fell approximately 8-10 ft,

potentially breaking their ankle. Rangers worked with RMR on this call.

• A party in Settler’s Park that had a warrant for their arrest.

Rangers worked with Boulder PD on this arrest.

• A report of two criminal trespasses. One happened in front of the Rolling Rock property,

while the other took place within the West South Boulder Creek Trailhead.

The suspect has not been found at this time.

• A report of an injured hiker on the Lower Bear Canyon trail. The hiker sprained their left ankle. Rangers worked with AMR on this call.

Cottonwood Pond Restoration

The restoration work at Cottonwood Pond and along Goose Creek is progressing.  This project is a partnership between OSMP and Public Works and is funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Cottonwood Pond, a former gravel pit, will be filled and restored to native wetland and riparian habitat.  When completed, Goose Creek will meander through wetland and riparian habitat before reaching Boulder Creek.  Of all wetland types, the Front Range has experienced the biggest loss of acreage in the riverine wetland type; this project will also increase riverine wetland habitat. The restoration project will also eliminate the Eurasian water milfoil and curly leaf pondweed, both aggressive non-native aquatic weeds, which currently infest the pond.

Community Outreach

OSMP Opening Art Show Evening a Success - Several hundred people, including many of the artists with work on display, turned out for the opening reception for the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks art show, Art Inspired by the Land.

Denver art premiere for Stone and Williams, of Boulder,


 Artist Wood Worker Kerry Stoen and Visual Artist Patrick Williams will come together for a stunning night of Art, Friday, June 7 at CS Woods in Denver.  This is a not to be missed, one night only show premiering the exquisite and visionary wood working of Kerry Stoen and the sensual, radically creative work of Patrick Williams.
Natural wood art

The pair met at a martial arts dojo a few years back which sparked an immediate creative kinship between the two, thus conceiving of a collaborative exhibition in a space outside of the box of the mainstream gallery scene.  The show will premier a new collection of Stoen’s tables; supremely crafted, organically whimsical, imagistically daring pieces built by the hands of a master wood worker who has been making high end functional objects and installations for over 40 years.

Williams, an internationally collected artist whose work ranges from simple Japanese influenced Sumi paintings to technically brilliant, emotionally layered large scale figurative drawings,(and everything in between) has gathered together a sampling of his 38 years of art making.  Williams’ large scale drawings and paintings will be installed on stacks of lumber in the warehouse.
He has always delighted in showing his work in unconventional spaces; raw, organic environments where “art and people can breathe together, movement and conversation less inhibited.”

Tyler, The Creator cause Gansta storm in Boulder What idiot invited this Jerk ?


Tumblr and the Fox Theater brought this LA gansta rapper to Boulder and since 6:30 pm 30 to 100 cops have been trying to corral  stoned and drunk punks who follow Tyler. Tumblr and the Fox better pay for this mess. Hip hop night and Rap artists never go over very well at the Fox. They bring with them guns, inner city thugs, crime and all kinds of trouble… every single time.  Shame on The Fox and Shame on Tumblr.

 Below is a Wikipedia description of the HATE spewed by Tyler..From Wikipedia
Tyler has been criticized for his use of homophobic slurs, in particular, his frequent use of the epithet faggot in his lyrics and on Twitter.[29][30] He has denied accusations of homophobia, stating, “I’m not homophobic. I just say faggot and use gay as an adjective to describe stupid shit,”[31][32] and, “I’m not homophobic. I just think faggot hits and hurts people.”[33] However, he later said in an interview with MTV about the slurs, “Well, I have gay fans and they don’t really take it offensive, so I don’t know. If it offends you, it offends you. If you call me a nigga, I really don’t care, but that’s just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don’t give a shit.”[34][35]
Main article: Misogyny in hip hop culture
Tyler has also been criticized for his graphic depictions of violence against women and his misogynistic lyrics.[36][37] Brent DiCrescenzo of Time Out Chicago writes that rape is a “predominant theme” of Goblin[38] and Hermione Hoby of The Guardian writes that Tyler’s “rape and murder fantasies (are) graphic enough to send the vomit rising along with the bile.”[39] The Fader tallied 68 uses of the term “bitch” over Goblin’s 73 minutes.[40] Responding to Canadian indie pop duo Tegan and Sara’s criticism of his lyrics,[41] Tyler tweeted: “If Tegan and Sara need some hard dick, hit me up!”[42]
Legal issues

On December 22, 2011, Tyler was arrested during a show at the Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, and charged with “suspicion of vandalism” for alleged destroying of sound equipment belonging to the venue. He was released on $20,000 bail.[1][43]

In the song “Yonkers,” Tyler disses numerous artists, such as rappers/singers B.o.B and Bruno Mars, and Hayley Williams, frontwoman of band Paramore. Tyler, the Creator also disses Bruno Mars in The Game’s song “Martians vs. Goblins,” in which he and Lil Wayne are featured artists. In response, B.o.B released a similar diss track, entitled “No Future” that also references Tyler’s group, Odd Future. Ironically, Tyler praised the song, and initially did not think it was a diss track. Bruno Mars, in response to the verse “stab Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus,” said, “[Tyler] has to wait in line if he wants to stab me…[Tyler's] definitely not the first guy that’s said something like that to me and he’s not going to be the last.”[44] Los Angeles rapper Hopsin also dissed him in his “Ill Mind of Hopsin 4″ music video, released in July 2011. As a response, he was parodied in the “Martians vs. Goblins” music video.
Tyler, The Creator and R&B singer Chris Brown feuded due to claims Brown tweeted on Twitter of Odd Future’s music containing a “demonic” message. Tyler had made several sarcastic remarks via Twitter afterwards, leading to a heated feud between the two musicians. Before a live performance alongside Frank Ocean, Tyler, The Creator called out Chris Brown referring to Brown’s savage beating of fellow musician Rihanna. Afterwards, Brown and Tyler cleared up the feud when Tyler tweeted that he is a fan of Chris Brown’s song “Look At Me Now” featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes. According to Tyler, The Creator there are things “[his fans] don’t even know” about the feud.[45]
Tyler has also feuded with former collaborator Brandun DeShay. Prior to SXSW 2011, DeShay confronted Tyler through Formspring and said that he was going to “settle this” at SXSW. Tyler has since told fans that the only song they ever collaborated on was “Session”, from Tyler’s debut album Bastard. Tyler re-released the album one year after its initial release, replacing Brandun DeShay’s verse with a new one by Mike G. Tyler has since said that any other song performed by the two of them were created by DeShay, and that he recorded verses over Tyler’s songs without his permission. According to Tyler, DeShay hit him at one point. Tyler also disses DeShay in his song “Yonkers”, by bragging about his own success and publicity.[46]
Through Formspring, Tyler has also said that he does not like Vince Staples, although he praised his rapping abilities.[47] Vince has collaborated with several members of Odd Future, notably Earl Sweatshirt, Mike G, Domo Genesis & The Jet Age of Tomorrow. In 2011, Tyler said that he does not dislike Vince, but he dislikes the fact that people think he is a part of Odd Future when he is not actually in the group.[48]“
