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.
Celebrating the close of the tenth annual Architecture Lecture Series, this panel invites legendary voices who can trace the rich tradition of architecture in our community, asking: how has the design of our local environment evolved and where might we be headed? Moderated by 2018 American Institute of Architects National President, Carl Elefante, this panel includes Charles Cunniffe, John Cottle, Sarah Broughton, and Scott Lindenau.
This after-school program for kids in grades K–4 is held weekly at the Aspen Art Museum from September through May. Taking place most Wednesdays from 2:30–4 p.m., these workshops recognize the value of exposing children to the arts at an early age and use the artist’s process as an educational tool. Museum educators and teaching artists lead classes that include activities in the gallery and take-home projects.
Classes are limited to fifteen participants. Prior registration is strongly encouraged.
Members: $18 per class
