Successful evening comes as AAM nears capital campaign goal; $45.7 million raised, $20 million endowment portion secured as museum prepares for construction of new
Shigeru-Ban-designed building.

ASPEN, CO—On Friday, August 5, 2011, the Aspen Art Museum hosted its seventh annual ArtCrush summer benefit, raising an all time best of $1.7 million in support of the museum’s
contemporary art programming. ArtCrush honoree and recipient of the AAM’s 2011 Aspen Award for Art Roni Horn was celebrated as guests from New York to LA and beyond witnessed
the artist’s Clowd and Cloun (Gray) (2000/2001) auction for a record-breaking $420K—the highest raised by a single work of art in the 7-year history of the ArtCrush benefit. Other results
from the evening’s live auction conducted by Sotheby’s Deputy Chairman, Principal Auctioneer and Worldwide Head of Contemporary Art Tobias Meyer, included Rashid Johnson’s
Alternator (2011) sold at $52K; Julian Opie’s Christine Swimming (2003) at $42K; Damián Ortega’s Supermodernismo IV (2009) at $63K; James Surls’s Stem Cells 1 (2011) at $35K;
AAM’s 2011 Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence Haegue Yang’s



Oblique Gymnastic (2010) at $45K; Jim Lambie’s Reflections in Gold (2002) at $30K; David Altmedjd’s Untitled (2011) at $45K; Jason Middlebrook’s You and I and Other Just Like Us
(2011) at $30K; Richard Avedon’s Suzy Parker, Evening Dress by Dior, Paris Studio, August (1981) at $42K; and Gary Simons’s Savage Sisters (2010) at $38K.

The 2011 ArtCrush Live Auction raised a total of $842K, which, along with a host of silent auction lots of fine art and wine—helped set the evening’s record-setting total.

Chaired by veteran ArtCrush Chair and AAM National Council member Amy Phelan, the main Friday night gala marked the culmination of the museum’s annual three-day ArtCrush benefit
hosting 350 of the world’s most influential art collectors, wine connoisseurs, artists, gallery owners, museum directors, curators, and global business leaders. 2011 event attendees
included such notables as internationally renowned cycling legend Lance Armstrong and fashion-world icon Domenico DeSole (See extended highlights of guests below). The ArtCrush gala, “an evening at the ice hotel,” was preceded by associated events WineCrush, a private wine tasting and dinner at the home of John & Amy Phelan guided by master sommeliers; PreviewCrush, a public viewing of donated artworks featured in the ArtCrush live
auction on view at Richard Edward’s Baldwin Gallery; and was followed by a sizzling AfterPartyCrush at Aspen’s Syzygy with entertainment by DJ Samantha Ronson.

Each year artCRUSH draws major art world figures from across the country and around the globe. Joining event chair Amy Phelan, 2011 attendees included:
