In a new exhibit at the Aspen Art Museum, viewers have to be careful not to step on the art. “The Discipline of the Cave” by Mexican artist Gabriel Rico asks them to engage different senses.

 

Wet snow and rain have boosted the Roaring Fork Watershed's snowpack. The sticky snow has contributed to snowpack that is 139 percent of average.

 

Welcome to the beginning of another week in the Roaring Fork Valley! This is Week in the Arts, a curated list of upcoming exhibitions and events.

Getting people to grasp the dangers posed by climate change has proved a challenge for scientists. Now, artists are taking a shot at it.  A new exhibit highlights national and local artists whose work aims to show that climate change is an emergency.  “Imagine Climate” is a collaboration between Anderson Ranch Arts Center and local environmental group CORE.

On Thursday, avalanche danger around Aspen broke records.  

 

Last fall's deadly Camp Fire has brought renewed questions about whether towns in high-risk areas like Paradise, Calif., should even be rebuilt.

Barry Long recently tried to squash those questions immediately as he kicked off a crowded town hall meeting at Paradise Alliance Church.

"One of the first questions we get is, 'Are they really going to rebuild Paradise?' " Long said. "And we say that's not a question. [The Town] Council made an immediate decision [that] we're going to rebuild Paradise."

Architect John Patkau helped design the Audain Art Museum in Whistler, British Columbia. On Thursday, he’ll present on the challenges and rewards of developing iconic buildings in resort towns at the Aspen Art Museum, which has faced its own share of pushback from residents.

The 1A development was approved by a narrow margin; 26 votes decided the fate of the new chairlift and plaza.

State News

After days of fierce partisanship at the state Capitol, Democrats in the Colorado Senate advanced a bill Wednesday that will give local governments more control over oil and gas drilling operations.

But as the bill heads over to the House for more debate, there are signs it will undergo some more changes in the coming days.

Colorado lawmakers are now more than halfway through the legislative session, and they’ve debated at length over oil and gas regulations and how the state votes for presidents.

But one issue has been notably absent so far from the agenda: Transportation funding.

It’s been four months since voters rejected two tax measures that would have provided billions of dollars worth of funding for the state’s roads and bridges.

On the eve of what could be one of the  most important speeches of his political career, former Gov. John Hickenlooper stopped by the Wynkoop Brewing Co. talk to reporters about craft beer, politics and why he thinks he’s the best democrat to take on Donald Trump.
