Mission and Vision
Anderson Ranch Arts Center enriches lives with art, inspiration, and community.
Anderson Ranch would like to acknowledge that our campus resides on the traditional, ancestral territory of the Ute people, who called the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond home for over 800 years. Through our mission to promote a wide range of arts, cultures, and voices, we commit to partner with and honor the indigenous ancestors and residents of this sacred land where we learn, work, and create.
Commitment and Equity Statement
For over half a century, Anderson Ranch Arts Center has opened our doors to everyone with a passion for the arts. Art requires individual thought and expression and artists can serve as powerful educators during times of great change and growth. We maintain an intentional focus on ensuring inclusion in our community to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion. We remain committed to strengthening our understanding of equity and diversity by listening to our community’s needs, researching rich and diverse artistic programming, partnering with BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities and cultural organizations, and providing education for our staff, faculty, and board.
The Ranch Café
Offering a wide variety of freshly-made food and beverage options during select months of the year. The Ranch Café is open to students, staff and faculty for breakfast and dinner as well as the public for lunch.
This gallery space on the Anderson Ranch campus is home to contemporary and rustic ranch architectural elements and provides the backdrop for rotating exhibitions throughout the year.
