Art And The Great Re-Set: Featured Art At The Action Forum


Art has always been a central component of the Action Forum. Visual art allows us to reflect on complex ideas in ways that the written word cannot. This year, there will be three featured art installations:
  • “Working in America” from Project&, explores the authentic stories of people's daily lives and interactions in the American workforce to create a more empathetic society. The exhibit is currently installed in downtown Aspen at the Pitkin County Library. Join a tour of exhibit with Sonny Garg (Henry Crown Fellow, Chair of Project&) and Jane Saks (President and Artistic Director of Project&) at a reception on July 27.
  • The final "installation" is the Aspen Institute campus itself. The campus was designed in the Bauhaus style by artist Herbert Bayer. The Bauhaus school was born in 1919 an age when industrialization, post-war rebuilding, and new technologies were having dramatic impact on people around the world – in many ways, a “Great Re-Set." Special tours will be offered to offer insight on the Bauhaus influence on campus.
