New Fall Lecture Series
Enjoy a lecture followed by dinner in The Ranch Café!
Anderson Ranch Arts Center is thrilled to launch a new fall lecture series that will run weekly from October 20th through December 6th. The lineup consists of Visiting Artists and Critics from around the country who will be traveling to Snowmass and spending one to three weeks at the Ranch completing projects within their area of expertise and exploring new work in the studios.
The lectures are free, open to the public, and available in person or via livestream. Stick around after the event and join us for dinner! A buffet dinner will be served for $25/person immediately following the lecture. Registration is required for attendance.
Artists-inResidence have unlimited access to Anderson Ranch’s artistic studios and state-of-the-art equipment during their residency including 55,000 square feet of space in which to focus on their art and explore new ideas.
Who We Are
At Anderson Ranch, we recognize human beings’ lifelong need to develop personal creativity and to discover, learn and grow. Artists of all levels come from across the country and around the world to explore new ideas, hone their art making skills and engage in meaningful dialog at the Ranch. Both an international center and a close community, Anderson Ranch welcomes adults, art students, children and teens―from beginners to the leading artists of our time.
What you need, when you need it.
Our artistic studios offer 55,000 square feet of space in which to work, in all eight of the Ranch’s artistic disciplines: Ceramics, Digital Fabrication, Sculpture, Furniture Design & Woodworking, Woodturning, Painting & Drawing, Printmaking, and Photography & New Media.
Inside you’ll find impeccable spaces for art making and state-of-the-art equipment, all specifically designed to feed the passion of the artists who come to Anderson Ranch to make art, learn new skills and share ideas.
