National Council

A community of friends and supporters.

Friends and supporters of Anderson Ranch are a central part of the Ranch family. The loyalty and deep friendships that form and grow within this group and our community of artists is truly inspiring. During uncertain times, our commitment to bringing artists and audiences together has not changed, even if the circumstances have. The support of National Council members is critical to our success.

If you are able to renew your membership this year, or are able to join for the first time, please let Director of Individual Philanthropy Ellie Hahn know by email at

We would be happy to renew your membership now and invoice you later in the year. As we plan for the future during these uncertain times, counting on your support means a great deal.

The National Council is a dynamic community of supporters who play a leadership role at Anderson Ranch. They provide the annual support to sustain and advance the Ranch’s high caliber workshops, artist residencies, visiting artist projects, exhibitions, artist lectures and community outreach.

As a National Council member, you become part of a global arts community that champions Anderson Ranch and its advancement as a place for artistic discovery, community and dialog. National Council members receive invitations to exclusive behind-the-scenes events held in Aspen and beyond, and enjoy intimate access to top contemporary artists, art fairs and collection tours. There are many ways to get involved with Anderson Ranch and the broader world of contemporary art by joining the National Council. We look forward to welcoming you!
