Colorado Art Ranch Welcomes Two New Board Members

In September two talented and enthusiastic people were added to help Colorado Art Ranch fulfill its mission. The new board members were added to fill perceived gaps in our knowledge base.

Cathi Schwalbe-Bouzide cathi (at)

Cathi is an artist living in Chicago. Cathi was a presenter at the Delta County Artposium in 2009, Dinner Stories, and was an artist-in-residence at the Salida 2010 Residency. In Chicago, Cathi Schwalbe-Bouzide is known as the Corn Lady. It's not hard to see why. Much of her artwork is about corn and explores corn culture. What she does is more than just "agricultural art." Bouzide's work reminds us of the relationship between land and food, between where we live and how we eat. Cathi’s will be responsible for overseeing the residency planning, recruitment and implementation.

Stevan will be overseeing financial operations and helping with strategies to make the organization sustainable.
