- Aspen Art Museum is an artist-founded institution dedicated to supporting artists in the development of bold ideas to shape our museum and the field of art today.
Lights, camera, action! Put your director hat on and come join us for a fun-filled week of directing, designing, and producing your own stop-motion animation film. The week will end with a special screening for family and friends.
Based on the life of folk artist Maud Lewis, this story follows an unlikely romance between Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) and Maudie (Sally Hawkins). Maudie, bright-eyed but stricken with arthritis, yearns to be independent, live away from her protective family, and create art.
Artists are inspired by the world around them, from simple, everyday objects to complex ideas. Young artists will transform the textures from our worlds, including our favorite foods! We will create large-scale, abstract sculptures, beautiful enough to make you want to take a bite!
Birds, insects, mammals—we all observe and interpret the world around us differently. Abstraction is a way to visualize how we might view the world creatively. Artists will create their own series of abstract sculptures, using materials such as plaster and clay that are inspired by the natural world around Hallam Lake and beyond.
Active Art invites seniors to engage in the social dimensions of art. Each month, museum Educators bring free, memory-enhancing activities to the assisted living communities of Whitcomb Terrace in Aspen and Heritage Park in Carbondale.
In this retelling of the classic Greek myth, Orpheus and Eurydice meet, intertwine, and face loss during Carnival week in Rio de Janeiro.
