Aspen Art Museum


September 23-28, 2014

During the week surrounding the transition into the fall season, the Aspen Art Museum invites the culturally ambitious to explore a series of talks, performances, and a film.

The Autumn Equinox, a fleeting moment when day and night are of equal lengths, allows us to consider the notion of balance and pose such questions as: What attracts us to places, people, and ideas? To making or learning?

All events take place at 637 East Hyman Avenue and are free of charge except where otherwise noted.
