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.
Calling all artists: join AAM Artist Programs Coordinator, Teresa Booth Brown, and artist and graphic designer, Curt Carpenter, for a hands-on activity tied to Robert Montgomery’s exhibition The City in Their Echo. This free program starts with a conversation on the typographical elements of the work and ends with a hands-on scratch-art project, conversation, and refreshments.
Are you looking for an intimate, constructive environment to gain new perspectives on your artwork? Adopting art school’s format of group feedback, this program provides a selected group of local artists with valuable insight from a visiting expert. This session is led by the AAM’s new Senior Curator, Max Weintraub.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 AM–6 PM
