Artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby visited Anderson Ranch Arts Center last week.  In her large-scale paintings, she captures scenes of multiple cultures coming together. She received a Macarthur Genius Grant in 2017 for breaking new ground in portraying the immigrant experience in her art.

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.

Anderson Ranch Arts Center and environmental group CORE bring together art and science to inspire action on climate change in a new exhibit.

Anderson Ranch has named Peter Waanders as their new president and CEO.  

Waanders comes to Anderson Ranch from the Aspen Institute, where he’s currently the Director for the Society of Fellows. He managed that program’s expansion to year-round events in cities around the U.S.  Before joining the Institute, he ran independent bookstores and was a partner in David Floria Gallery in Aspen.

Los Angeles -based contemporary artist Glenn Kaino speaks tonight in Snowmass Village.

Kaino is the current visiting artist at Anderson Ranch.  He’s known for art that takes everyday objects and puts a twist on them. His statue ‘Invisible Man,’ for example, is partly made from mirrored stainless steel, and seems to disappear when viewed from certain angles.

This week at Anderson Ranch we go into the studio of the Haas Brothers.  The twins who create whimsical gold mushrooms with beaded caps that soar eight feet into the air, furry horned day beds with bronze paws, hand thrown ceramic accretions, and brightly beaded fanciful creatures share the most important parts of the creative process.
