Roaring Fork Valley artists are invited to join our Friday afternoon artist gathering for coffee and conversation with the 2021 AAM Artist Fellows.
Monthly AAM Artist Coffee sessions are our way of providing a little time and plenty of space to get together with AAM Educators and fellow guests to hear your perspectives on art, studio practice, and topics of interest. We’ll discuss what it means to be an artist, especially during this time of social change, as well as share ideas on art education and how to make it more accessible to our community.
We do what we do because artists make it possible. Please join us in helping shape the dialogue.
Join us this Friday, October 1, at 8 a.m. on our rooftop for explorations of sound, breathwork, and meditation through the practices of Reiki, Somatic Ceremony, Qi Gong, and Sonic Alchemy as led by facilitators Parker Roe, Lauren B Love, and Brian Katz.
Bring your creative self and join artist Marilyn Lowey for an unconventional experience of Cerith Wyn Evan’s exhibition, Aspen Drift. The program starts with a brief artist led discussion followed by an over-the-top art project and delicious refreshments.

Join the Aspen Art Museum and the Museum Confidential podcast for a lively, in-person discussion that begins with a seemingly simple question: Why does Andy Warhol persist? Timed to coincide with the opening of the major international retrospective Andy Warhol: Lifetimes, Museum Confidential host Jeff Martin will lead the discussion with Nancy and Bob Magoon Director Nicola Lees, artist and AAM Curator at Large Monica Majoli, and Assistant Curator Simone Krug. The conversation will explore the exhibition, which focuses on the biographical underpinnings of Warhol’s practice by expanding on the lesser-known aspects of his work and persona. Andy Warhol: Lifetimes breaks new ground by casting a queer eye on the artist as an outsider and disruptor who remade America’s image to resonate with his sensibility.

In the 1950s, Andy Warhol would throw coloring parties at his favorite Upper East Side ice cream shop, Serendipity 3. Friends and strangers alike would mix and mingle and help Andy add color to his illustrations. Join us for a collective coloring party in this same collaborative spirit at The Factory.
