- 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.
Art and writing go hand-in-hand in this “wordshop,” inspired by the mixed-media artwork of Rashid Johnson. Combine poetry with paint to create new and inspirational works of art that capture the spirit of your favorite vacation destinations!
New York, London, Japan, Aspen! Expand your skills, style, and friendships in this advanced workshop for teens. Students will be given the tools and materials needed to conceive and create haute-couture fashion, while stretching teen fashion trends found around the globe with classical garment construction. These unique fashions will be presented to friends and family at an end-of-week Fashion Show.
Taking inspiration from the Lebanese artist and poet, Etel Adnan, artists in this painting workshop will use brushstrokes to bring memories to life. Recollections of special places, both real and imagined, will appear as ink moves across paper, colors shape canvas, and words and images join together in unique folding books.
Presented in collaboration with the Aspen Music Festival and School (AMFS), this free chamber concert series features one-hour performances by the most advanced AMFS students and visiting musicians in Aspen.
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.
Lisa Yuskavage was born in Philadelphia, in 1962, and lives and works in New York. Her approach to figurative painting challenges conventional understandings of the genre and combines art history, popular culture, and fantastical references. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva, Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, and the Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA. Yuskavage is the recipient of the 2019 Aspen Award for Art.
You won’t want to miss this art party! Young artists are invited to select a favorite exhibition from the AAM’s “collection” and create a series of new works in response. The week will culminate in a colorful group show celebrating the AAM’s past, present, and future. Artwork will be displayed as part of the twenty-four-hour celebration for everyone at the museum.
