In conjunction with Plugged In and to celebrate the 2013 ESPN Winter X Games, the AAM and YCRF are hosting Art x Sport, a special panel discussion with Evan Hecox and Ari Marcopoulos, noted artists who have been instrumental in defining the visual aesthetic of skate and snowboard culture.
The AAM’s Young Curators of the Roaring Fork (YCRF) program brings together high school students from across the Roaring Fork Valley who share an interest in contemporary art. From October to January, the curators work together to organize an exhibition of artwork by their peers, developing a deeper understanding of contemporary art and strengthening their visual literacy skills in the process.
The 2012–13 class of young curators chose Plugged In as the theme and title of their exhibition, asking artists in their schools to create works of art in any media that shed light on the experience of being a “plugged-in” generation. The exhibition will explore the many ways we navigate the complex network of information and technology that has, thus far, defined the 21st century.
