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.
Let art and spectacular views elevate your experience of music. Presented in collaboration with the Aspen Music Festival and School (AMFS), this free chamber concert series takes place this summer in the Roof Deck Sculpture Garden, featuring one-hour performances by the most advanced AMFS students and visiting musicians in Aspen.
