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.
Take a stroll along Hallam Lake and discover what nature has to offer! In this collaborative Workshop with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, we will discover the beauty of the natural environment. We will use different mediums to capture what we see and find together—including watercolors, instant film, and drawing—and to create art just as beautiful as the area around us.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 AM–6 PM
