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.
This after-school program for kids in Grades K–4 is held most Wednesdays during the school year at the AAM. Museum educators lead classes that include activities in the gallery and take-home projects.<br><br>
Classes are limited to fifteen participants. Prior registration strongly encouraged.

Tuttle’s practice integrates painting, sculpture, poetry, assemblage, and drawing to create poetic interventions on the human experience. His work was on view at the AAM in 2005–06, and he is returning to Aspen to participate in the kick-off to The Whole Celebration’s twenty-four-hour celebration of the AAM’s anniversary.
