Anderson Ranch http://kajx.org en Audio Canvas - Fall at the Ranch http://kajx.org/post/audio-canvas-fall-ranch <p>From the first week of June to Labor Day, Anderson Ranch Arts Center is full of working artists, children's workshops, firing kilns, busy cafe kitchen staff, artist lectures, and a variety of other events on and off the campus (to touch on a few). Anderson Ranch's campus closes down for the first week of September, but the season doesn't stop there. Three more works of intensive workshops and artists-in-residence keep the autumn busy. Nancy Wilhelms, the Executive Director of Anderson Ranch, sat down to explain what exactly happens when the busy weeks of summer come to a close.&nbsp;</p><p>More information on Anderson Ranch can be found <a href="http://www.andersonranch.org">here</a>.&nbsp;<br><br> Tue, 03 Sep 2013 20:47:28 +0000 Cornelia Carpenter 6946 at http://kajx.org Audio Canvas - Fall at the Ranch Christo Hasn’t Given Up on Colorado Project http://kajx.org/post/christo-hasn-t-given-colorado-project <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">World renowned artist </span>Christo<span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;still hopes to do an ambitious art installation in Central Colorado.
