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.
This winter break, the museum offers a week of concurrent workshops for 4–5 year olds and 6–10 year olds to take inspiration from artists whose works are on view at the museum. Each day tackles a new creative challenge, winter activities, and a chance to play through art making. Lunch will be provided, and participants may sign up for the entire week or choose à la carte.
