The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.
Ready or not, here we come! In this tactile Workshop, we will cut, sew, and assemble colorful animal masks and costumes with an array of soft materials and found objects. Making unique disguises will only be half the fun. We’ll celebrate with a performance in costume for our friends and family at the end of the week.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 AM–6 PM
