ASPEN, Colorado (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Artists and collectors will be descending on Aspen August 11 for the 32nd annual Anderson Ranch Art Auction, and event that draws hundreds to bid on work by internationally-renowned artists and local artists. Attendees and participants are staying in Aspen vacation rentals booked through ColoradoVacationRentals.com.
The Anderson Ranch Arts Center is well known as a center for creative growth and expression that offers 150 workshops every summer for artists to focus on skills in painting, sculpting, photography and other art forms. At the end of the summer, focus changes from creating art to collecting it, which is the purpose behind the annual art auction.
The auction attracts hundreds of art enthusiasts to bid on work by internationally-renowned artists and locals alike in live and silent auctions. More than 250 artworks will be auctioned at the event.
Each summer for the last 32 years, art lovers and community members have supported Anderson Ranch by bidding on a wide range of artwork created by artists from throughout the valley and around the world celebrating contemporary artists and art-making.
The auction is expected to raise something in the neighborhood of $400,000, with all benefits going to the educational programs at Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
