The Aspen Art Museum is a non-collecting institution presenting the newest, most important evolutions in international contemporary art. The Education Department of the AAM strives to make contemporary art meaningful to a wide array of audiences through interpretive projects and diverse, community-based programming. These object-based learning opportunities are designed to engage audiences in thought-provoking experiences of art, culture, and society. Programs occur both in the museum and throughout the community, and provide the opportunity for audiences to see and respond to contemporary art through hands-on workshops, gallery talks and tours, lectures, and innovative activities related to current exhibitions.
