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.
This early childhood program provides playful exploration of storytelling for young audiences with their parents or caregivers. Held once a month, these free community workshops explore visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile experiences of narratives in art while building visual literacy and art appreciation.
How far will you go to reach your dreams? Inspired by the exhibition The Blue of Distance, this Workshop will explore how the color blue is related to wishes and longing. Taking cues from the artists in the exhibition, we will use photography, drawing, sound, and sculpture to create a group student exhibition that expresses our aspirations.
