The Aspen Art Museum is happy to announce the Youth Art Expo, a multifaceted exhibition of work created by K–12 students alongside dynamic puppetry performances and film.

All Roaring Fork Valley students are invited to exhibit their creations at the museum and participate in workshops offered by visiting puppetry artists and museum educators.

Expo Mentors:

• Brothers Pablo and Efrain Del Hierro from Puerto Rico and their unique and improvisational puppetry collective, Poncili Creación, will lead workshops, performances, and exhibition design.

• Rachel Sherk and Aaron Rourk from the MAPS non-profit (Music Art Puppets and Sound) which focuses on bringing experimental art, theater, and music practices to underserved and marginalized communities, will lead additional workshops and performances.

Individual students may participate by attending one of the Wednesday Workshops dedicated to puppets and mask-making. More information about this is forthcoming.

Please consult the museum calendar for dates.

Lesson Plans

The 2023 Youth Art Expo is made possible with the support provided by Andrea and James Gordon, the Questrom Education Fund, and the City of Aspen.
