The Aspen Art Museum is an accredited, globally preeminent, non-collecting museum that organizes and presents the newest, most important evolutions in global contemporary art through a dynamic exhibition program of sixteen to eighteen shows per year. With an annual operating budget of $7 million and a team of over seventy professional staff members, the AAM is situated in an iconic building in a picturesque environment with an exceptionally active community of contemporary art collectors. With our August 2014 opening of a new Shigeru Ban–designed facility in downtown Aspen with 17,500 square feet of exhibition space, this is an unprecedented time to join the Aspen Art Museum.
