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.
Drop-in Family Workshops at the AAM are designed to provide children and adults free opportunities to explore contemporary art and create works of art on their own. Families are encouraged to communicate, reflect, and produce as artists together. Artist Focus: Andrea Bowers, Project Theme: Expressing your Voice
