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 monthlong program for kids at the 5–8 grade level is held weekly at the Aspen Art Museum. Taking place on December 2, 9, and 16 from 3:30–5 p.m., these open choice workshops provide the creative room for kids to explore who they are through individual and collaborative projects and art.
An AAM membership means more than you might think. Each membership helps fund a specific aspect of museum programming, making each member a personal stakeholder in the museum’s mission and allowing each member’s contribution to fulfill his or her individual desire to support the AAM actively and directly.
