Young Curators seeks entries

The Aspen Art Museum’s Young Curators of the Roaring Fork is accepting entries for the group’s springtime exhibition.The museum seeks innovative artwork by young artists, ages 13 to 21, exploring “things left unspoken in daily life.” The exhibition will take place from April 28 to May 7 at the Aspen Meadows Kresge Building’s Hines Room.Young artists are invited to fill in the blank in the exhibition title, “Unspoken …” and submit artwork that speaks to their individual, unspoken theme. Submissions are due by Monday, Feb. 6, in any medium.Slides, photos (print or digital), or video documentation of art (not the actual art itself) should be sent to Morley McBride, interim education and public programs coordinator at the Aspen Art Museum, 590 North Mill St., Aspen, CO, 81611. Artists should include their name, age, school, telephone number and e-mail address, as well as a brief statement about how the theme relates to their life experience.The Young Curators of the Roaring Fork have been meeting as a group with Aspen Art Museum’s professional staff to learn the skills and procedures necessary to produce an exhibition of artworks by their peers. The Young Curators have been learning how to determine the theme of an exhibition, produce a call for entries, and write curatorial statements and press releases. They will choose the artwork, install the exhibition, coordinate the reception, and lead student tours of their exhibition. The group’s goal is to empower its participants to think more critically about the role of art, and visual images in general, in society.
