In 2008, art patrons and managing partners of the Aspen Skiing Company, Paula and Jim Crown, invited artist Walter Niedermayr to visit Aspen Snowmass to photograph the four mountains and surrounding landscape. The completed body of work --The Aspen Series -- became a contemporary document of the region. The completed pieces were installed at various locations throughout the resort: Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, and Snowmass, in on-mountain restaurants, ticket offices, and The Little Nell and The Limelight Hotel Aspen.


The Aspen Summer Series' multi-panel compositions were completed over the course of one year. The works feature four alpine locations photographed from different vantage points.


You are invited to viewThe Aspen Series installed alongside The Aspen Summer Series at a special exhibit with featured locations at The Little Nell, the Limelight Hotel Aspen, andAspen Center for Environmental Studies from June 10-September 4, 2017.
