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.
Organized by the high school participants of the Young Curators of the Roaring Fork program, this free event presents short films that explore perspectives of teenagers today and of past generations.
Family Workshops are free monthly drop-in opportunities that provide children and adults a chance to explore the galleries and create works of art on their own. Families get to know one another better through engagement with new artists and ideas. Families are encouraged to communicate, reflect, and produce as artists together. Recommended for families with children ages three to ten years old, these workshops are offered one Saturday each month from 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 am–6 pm
