MISSION

The Aspen Art Museum is a non-collecting institution presenting the newest, most important evolutions in international contemporary art. Our innovative and timely exhibitions, education and public programs, immersive activities, and community happenings actively engage audiences in thought-provoking experiences of art, culture, and society.

History

The structure that housed the former Aspen Art Museum on North Mill Street was originally built in 1888 for the Hunter Creek Power Plant. Aspen was the first city west of the Mississippi to have streetlights powered by hydroelectric energy—generated by the power plant—although it was initially developed to service the mining operations in the city.

In the fall of 1976, the City of Aspen received a mandate from voters to acquire what had become a historic building for community use. After putting together a task force, it was recommended that the City develop the power plant into a visual arts center, believing that an art space would best serve the community and offer the most creative and adaptive use of the site. By November 1977, the Aspen Center for the Visual Arts was incorporated within the state of Colorado, and in August of the following year, the board selected the organization’s first director, Philip Yenawine.

On June 16, 1979, the Aspen Center for the Visual Arts opened to the public with the exhibition American Portraits of the Sixties and Seventies. Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Chuck Close, Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Mapplethorpe, Claes Oldenburg, and Andy Warhol were among the artist’s included in this inaugural show.
