The Great Debate is a public program inviting elevated, engaged conversations around questions that unpack our opinions around art and beyond. Following the centuries-old format of the Oxford Union, the proposition “Are Facts Fundamental to Truth?” will be debated by four luminaries—two for and two against. Once the speakers have put forth their arguments, the discussion will open up to the audience for deliberation and a final vote. Presented in partnership with Aspen Public Radio and Aspen Film, this event will also include a screening of All the President’s Men (1976).
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.
Classes are limited to fifteen participants. Prior registration strongly encouraged.
Shot partially in Tangier, Morocco, near the hometown of Yto Barrada, this psychological thriller explores the multiple layers of the subconscious.

His rare ability is a curse from which the only way to escape is a final job in which he must do the opposite: create a crime scene in the mind of an enemy by planting an idea.
