What's an Artposium?
For people who appreciate the intersection of art, science, land, and human issues.
Colorado Art Ranch holds public forums, called Artposia, in towns throughout Colorado. The Artposia are designed for people who appreciate literature, contemporary art and the multidisciplinary exploration of ideas.
Past and future Artposium themes include rivers, mapping, land stewardship, humor, migration and immigration, sexuality, agritourism, aging and death, sustainability, dwellings, water conservation, crops and cuisine, and mine reclamation.
What Makes Colorado Art Ranch Unique?
"It's like a think fest."
"Overall thought the residents and speakers were thought provoking. They seemed to
"It was so well organized with every detail thoughtfully explored. The surprise elements, inherent in all events, were dealt with using calm, creativity, and a sense of humor. The presentations were relevant and thought provoking. I have a short attention span, so the timing of everything seemed "just right" as Goldilocks would say. The artbuddy system is an ingenious way to get the opportunities for 2-way connection into the community. I loved meeting all of the artists and having the opportunity to attend functions where they were "giving back". I am honored to be a nomad."
"I love what we are doing (see, the "you" has become "we" for me), and would like to be of help at all times. Thank you for bringing all these beautiful people and this beautiful piece of land together. You are all doing a fantastic job."
