Nestled among the pristine peaks of the Rocky Mountains in Snowmass Village, Colo., the Anderson Ranch Arts Center campus is comprised of 14 ranch buildings on five beautifully kept acres. For 50 years, the Ranch has been a destination and a welcoming community for art makers and art enthusiasts, providing time and space for artists—of all levels—to learn, create and be inspired. We offer state-of-the-art facilities and access to world renowned faculty through our summer workshops for adults, teens and children.
In addition, the Ranch hosts many public events, such as the exciting Summer Series: Featured Artists & Conversations, lively Lunchtime Auctionettes, Guest Faculty Lectures, the Recognition Dinner, the Annual Art Auction, gallery exhibits and more.
