Interview: Paula and Jim Crown


  In October, The Aspen Skiing Company was one of ten companies to receive an award from American for the Arts.  The awards went to the 10 "Best Businesses Partnering with the Arts in America."  Among them were Bacardi, Turner Broadcasting and Microsoft.  The inspiration behind this commitment to art comes in large part from Paula and Jim Crown, Managing Partners of the Aspen Skiing Company.  Paula Crown also is an artist.  They spoke with APR’s Roger Adams. 

For years, the Aspen Skiing Company has collaborated with various artists as part of what it calls, “Art in Unexpected Places.” The effort has included sculpture on mountain-sides, art works in ski lodges and now art books.
