Aspen Art Museum

2013 Exhibitions: Monika Sosnowska (February 15 - April 21), Kathrin Sonntag (February 15 - April 21)
Housed in a former hydroelectric plant, the Aspen Art Museum is a non-collecting contemporary art space presenting work in all shapes and sizes, as well as large-scale installations and electronic media. They hold group and solo exhibitions, including artists drawn from their Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence Program, which was established in 2008. If you visit on the Fourth of July, you'll be able to see their annual float project designed by a contemporary artist, as well as enjoy a free picnic on the museum grounds.
