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.
Active Art invites seniors to engage in the social dimensions of art. Each month, museum Educators bring free, memory-enhancing activities to the assisted-living communities of Whitcomb Terrace in Aspen and Heritage Park in Carbondale, and also host art making on the museum’s Roof Deck Sculpture Garden with complimentary refreshments.
In addition to the wide range of learning opportunities offered through conversations, lectures, film screenings, tours, and special events, the Aspen Art Museum also encourages adults to explore contemporary art in an intimate workshop setting. International and local teaching artists and educators design single or multi-session programs that explore concepts and processes significant to art and society today.
