      Active Art: Aspen

      Active Art is a monthly program that provides older adults in the Roaring Fork Valley seasonal opportunities to access and engage with contemporary art and the wider community through art appreciation classes, museum tours, art-making activities, and collaborations. Active Art: Aspen takes place in seasonal cycles over three sessions.

    • Since 2005, the Aspen Art Museum 
and the Aspen Skiing Company have collaborated to bring contemporary art to audiences in unexpected places. Each year, an artist is commissioned to produce artworks that are used on lift tickets for the winter season.

      Create Your Own Lift Ticket workshops are offered throughout the season for kids and families to respond to these designs by creating a personal lift ticket with the help of AAM educators.
