The Culture of Aspen

It was just another Thursday in Aspen.  Ski all day, party all night.  Aspen has a plethora of cultural options.   Tonight we attended a Artist's Reception at the Aspen Art Museum (AAM).  AAM brings some of the top contemporary artists in the world to the Roaring Fork Valley.  Mark Bradford, an acclaimed artist from L.A. presented his collection of Merchant Posters.  Bradford's multi media collage pieces appealed to a huge audience at AAM.  Also opening upstairs at AAM, Disembodied.  This collection of "body part art" defies description here, but---its a must see....and its FREE, 100% of the time.

We then bounced over to the Wheeler Opera House where Woody Creeker John Oates headlined the Benefit for Haiti.  The Wheeler was filled to capacity as the money raised and the good vibes will be sent to down to Haiti.

Lets not forget that the 2010 Winter Olympics kick off in Vancouver on Friday. In honor of the Olympiad, Bo Bridges-- a friend of A-Spin, allowed us to post his sick pic of Shaun White in the half pipe.  A similar image graced the pages of Sports Illustrated last week. Thanks to Bo for sharing his work.
