New Zealand native Susan Te Kahurangi King is the selected artist for Aspen Snowmass' 2019-20 winter season lift tickets.


King’s bold, colorful contemporary works, created with felt tip markers, have been exhibited in major art fairs, galleries and museums. 



“The Aspen Idea is founded on the ideals of mind, body and spirit, and the lift ticket art program is a perfect expression of our values of self-reflection and creativity, along with our community’s strong bond around the arts,” says Mike Kaplan, the president and CEO of Aspen Snowmass.


“We are incredibly excited to work with Susan King, whose art sparks a similar joy that is found spending time in the beautiful mountains and this incredible community,” he said.


This is the fifteenth year for the lift ticket art program, which was started as a partnership between the Aspen Art Museum and Aspen Snowmass.
