Art is everywhere. In Aspen, art is especially accessible. We take advantage of The Aspen Art Museum, it's a big-city resource in our little mountain town. We recently attended a lecture/ slide show given by super-hot curator, Massimiliano Gioni from The New Museum and The Wrong Gallery in NYC. WOW he showed off some crazy photos of his special exhibitions from around the world. Most of his stuff is wildly collaborative performance art and very grassroots. We found Gioni's rap to be fascinating.
In fact, after the lecture we sought out some of Aspen's local artists. There's plenty of accessible art right here in the valley: Each of these Aspen artists is google-able---check it out.
