Held annually every summer, ArtCrush is the major fundraising event benefiting the Aspen Art Museum and Aspen’s premier summer gala! Over the past fourteen years, ArtCrush has cumulatively raised nearly $28,000,000 in support of the AAM’s groundbreaking contemporary art programming. ArtCrush brings the AAM’s most important donors, the world’s top art collectors, wine connoisseurs, artists, gallerists, curators, celebrities, and global business leaders to Aspen, making it an internationally recognized hub of arts and culture.
The Next is the Aspen Art Museum’s new, sophisticated, après-style benefit debuting in December 2018! Guests of The Next represent a confluence of the finance, fashion, tech, and art world’s freshest faces and smartest entrepreneurs. Our most recent winter benefits have raised a total of more than $1.75 million to advance the museum’s mission. Most crucial to our mission is the support from sponsors and guests, which allows the museum to offer increasingly ambitious, thought-provoking contemporary arts programming, educational programming, and vital cultural access to Aspen residents and visitors alike.
