In an historic collaborative effort, the Aspen Art Museum and Anderson Ranch Arts Center present an exhibition that highlights the artistic accomplishments of Anderson Ranch, its history of art-making, and its importance to the local community.

ARAC@AAM: Anderson Ranch at the Aspen Art Museum is organized from over 250 submissions received from an open call to all former artists-in-residence, workshop faculty, visiting artists and critics, and Anderson Ranch staff. Collaboratively invited by the museum and the ranch, Dan Cameron, the Director of Visual Arts at the Contemporary Art Center, New Orleans; Laura Hoptman, the Senior Curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York; and Lauri Firstenberg, Director/Curator of LA-ART in Los Angeles, worked together to jury and curate the exhibition, which brings together works that are as rich and diverse as Anderson Ranch's own artistic legacy.

Featuring work by Aldwyth, Laura Berman, Lisa K. Blatt, Phyllis Bramson, Emily Cameron, Squeak Carnwath, Theresa Chong, Roy Dowell, Jessica Frelinghuysen, Don Fritz, Arthur González, Chris Gustin, Harmony Hammond, Cherie Hiser, Benjamin Koch, Christine Lee, Jeffrey Marshall, Scott McCarney, Liliana Mejia, Willie Osterman, Lucy Puls, Michael Puryear, Milton Rosa-Ortiz, Buzz Spector, John Torreano, Edie Tsong, and Mark Tribe.
