Aspen is famous for more than skiing. There are currently more than thirty art galleries in and around the Aspen area, where art created by famous artists around the world resides. Visiting the art galleries in Aspen is a must, and no Aspen vacation will be complete without this taste of culture.
Most of the art galleries are within walking distance of each other, arranged in a three by four block area. This area is located between Spring Street and Monarch Street, and Hopkins Avenue and Durant Street.
You will find everything from vintage poster art at the Omnibus Gallery to Impressionism art at the Galerie Du Bois. Visit the Highline Gallery for glass art and the Pam Driscol Gallery for bronze sculpture art. Contemporary collections can be found at the Baldwin Gallery.
While some galleries are open after hours, many close around 5 pm. It is important to find out the operating hours of the galleries that you want to visit ahead of time. Many shows and events are planned at the galleries for the evening hours as well.
