Atop the Village Express Lift, Snowmass, CO
At the top of Sam’s Knob in Snowmass, CO, diners at the lively Italian restaurant Sam’s find sweeping views of the Elk Mountains, homemade pasta and grass-fed beef, and walls hung with Crown’s inventive artwork.
The installation is part of the Art in Unexpected Places program, an initiative of the Aspen Skiing Company to install art in surprising places, such as on mountaintops, lift tickets and passes, and all around town.
“Our history in supporting and partnering with the arts community ties in perfectly with our core principals and our company’s business philosophy,” said Mike Kaplan, president and CEO of Aspen Skiing Company. “Art, like skiing, is just another way to live passionately and honor the things that make this community shine.”
