Aspen Art Museum


Young Curators of the Roaring Fork

Since 2005, the Aspen Art Museum’s Young Curators of the Roaring Fork (YCRF) program has engaged high school students in direct exposure to a collection of world-class exhibitions, artists, and ideas of an accredited contemporary art museum.

Through the course of the six-month program, YCRF interns work directly with the museum’s education and curatorial staff, ultimately building aesthetic valuation, leadership, organizational, and critical-thinking skills.

YCRF interns work together on all aspects of the curatorial process to produce an exhibition of artworks created by their peers.


AAM education programs are made possible by the Questrom Education Fund.
