Adams State College Community Partnerships collaborated with local artists, who work with discarded material, to exhibit their work at the Aspen Eco Art Fest. By participating in this exhibit, artists expand their market, help raise awareness of discarded material, and promote their artwork and the San Luis Valley. The exhibit dates are April 5 through April 25 at the Inn of Aspen, located at 38750 Hwy 82, Aspen, Colo. An artists’ reception starts at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 25.

ASC Community Partnerships hosts an annual exhibit featuring artwork made from recycled, found, or reclaimed objects. This is the first Aspen Eco Art Exhibit coordinated through Red Brick Aspen Art Council. Local artists accepted into the exhibit include Anthony Guntren, Ellen Caparosa-Hanson, Mary Hoffman, John Patterson, Lizbeth Miranda, and Dodie Day.
