With coronavirus (COVID-19) making headlines over the past few weeks, we wanted to let you know that the AAM is taking precautions. While the current risk in Colorado remains low, we are closely monitoring health officials’ recommendations and carefully considering options with visitor safety as a top priority. Therefore, the AAM will be postponing Jim Olson’s lecture that was originally planned for March 12th at 5pm at the AAM. Please stay tuned for a new date to be announced.

As the founding partner of Olson Kundig, Jim Olson has explored the aesthetic interplay of art, nature, and architecture, as well as the relationship between light and space, for over fifty years. Though best known for his houses designed for art collectors, he also designs museums, religious spaces, and commercial buildings. His recent work includes Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art in Denver and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at Washington State University.
