Mission and Vision

Our Mission

Anderson Ranch Arts Center enriches lives with art, inspiration, and community.

Land Acknowledgment

Anderson Ranch acknowledges 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.
