In 2009, during Boulder’s 150th Anniversary, a group of artists and historians created The Ditch Project to celebrate 150 years of Boulder’s irrigation history. They found historic images of Boulder’s ditches and took contemporary photographs from the same locations. Thus evolved the exhibit, Boulder County Ditches: Then & Now.
The Ditch Project:
150 Years of Irrigation Ditches; Constructing Boulder's Landscape
In 2009, Boulder, Colorado celebrated its 150th birthday or Sesquicentennial. In honor of this event, the Ditch Project brought together artists, historians, scientists, and the general public together to celebrate 150 years of irrigation history and consider how ditches have constructed Boulder's landscape. Now, online and in an upcoming book, The Ditch Project continues to examine Boulder's irrigation ditches over the last 150 years. To learn more, visit the links above.
