When you think of sports in the Roaring Fork Valley, you might think skiing, hiking, but what about fencing? The founder of the Roaring Fork Fencing Club wants to share his passion for what he calls a "cerebral sport," and kids are catching on.

In 2009, Marc Maron was a struggling stand-up comic. With nothing to lose, he began experimenting with podcasting, and was one of the first to do so. Now, millions of listeners download each episode of his show, “WTF,” to hear his long, informal -- often intimate -- conversations with creative people.

In a new documentary, “The River and the Wall,” filmmaker Ben Masters is joined by a small group of scientists and conservationists on a nearly three-month-long journey down 1,200 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. The project aims to show the beauty and variety of landscapes in the borderlands.

The first People’s Choice Art Show takes place Thursday at The Collective in Snowmass’ Base Village. It’s a part of the new venue’s emphasis on local artists.

A classical pianist plays the works of Schumann in Aspen on Tuesday night.  No, not Robert Schumann: his wife, Clara. Pianist Karolina Syrovatkova will perform Clara’s work as Clara herself.

The Green Is The New Black fashion show in Carbondale features original clothing, all created from sustainable materials.  

The designs on the runway might be made with organic cotton or hemp, or be up-cycled (created from previously worn items). Some fabrics may even come from pineapple and coconut fibers, or old plastic bottles.

 

"A CEO, a climate scientist and an artist walk into a bar..." This is not the beginning of a joke, but the premise for a panel Tuesday night, called “Future Energy.”

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.

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.

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.

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