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.
From July 18–22, Tibetan Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling Monastery will construct a temporary mandala sand painting on Level 3 of the Aspen Art Museum as part of their annual visit to Aspen. Visitors are invited to watch the creation of this temporal artwork during regular museum hours.
For the first three Saturdays in March, join us on Level 3 from 3–5 p.m. for an Après-Ski offering of spectacular mountain views, art making, live music, free snacks, and discounts at the café. Rotating lineups of local talent and an art station with Create Your Own Lift Ticket ensure fun for all ages. The final après event culminates with a viewing and celebration of the World Cup on Aspen Mountain.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 AM–6 PM
