The Youth Art Expo is a biennial community art program that encompasses a multifaceted exhibition of work created by K–12-grade students from the Roaring Fork Valley (and beyond) alongside dynamic artist mentors. Students are invited to exhibit their creations at the Museum and participate in workshops offered by visiting artists, museum educators, and at their local schools. The Aspen Art Museum provides curricula and materials to ensure every school can access resources to participate. Our 2023 iteration, Puppets, Masks & Storytelling, showed us that this is an educational model worth sharing and expanding. We are so excited to announce our theme for 2025, so stay tuned!
