Over 300 of the world’s top art collectors, wine connoisseurs, artists, gallery owners, museum directors, curators, and global business leaders come together in Aspen for three days of
striking events to celebrate the Aspen Art Museum’s 7th annual ArtCrush summer benefit gala.

ArtCrush and related events, WineCrush, PreviewCrush, and AfterpartyCrush, will be held
August 3 – 5, 2011, with the main ArtCrush gala taking place on Friday, August 5, featuring the presentation of the 2011 Aspen Award for Art to internationally renowned artist Roni Horn.
Friday’s event will also include a seated dinner followed by a live auction of one-of-a-kind works by such esteemed artists as David Altmejd, Richard Avedon, Huma Bhaba, Mark Manders,
Mickalene Thomas, AAM exhibiting artist Stephen Shore, Cathy Wilkes and others (extensive list below), conducted by Sotheby’s principal auctioneer and Worldwide Head of Contemporary
Art Tobias Meyer.

In addition, special ArtCrush-related events precede the Friday gala, beginning with wineCRUSH, hosted annually by John and Amy Phelan in their contemporary Aspen home and featuring the couple’s cutting-edge art collection. The remarkable limited-attendance
evening features wine and food presented by master sommeliers led by Jay Fletcher who
guides guests through rare vintages
and pairings.

PreviewCrush is a cocktail reception held at Aspen’s Baldwin Gallery and hosted by gallery owner Richard Edwards, that allows guests to preview both live and silent auction offerings to
be auctioned off at the main ArtCrush gala.

2011 Aspen Award for Art Honoree Roni Horn
For more than thirty years, artist Roni Horn has made work that combines conceptual rigor and formal beauty, often exploring issues of gender, identity, and the complex relationship between
object and subject. Horn works in a variety of media, including photography and sculpture, creating intricate relationships between the viewer and her work by installing a single piece on
opposing walls, in adjoining rooms, or throughout a series of buildings. Many works are composed of pairs, multisided parts, or series that invite comparison between their elements.
The diversity of Horn's works reflects her ongoing exploration of how one's identity and memory can be as changeable and fleeting as flowing water, weather, and time.

Past recipients of the Aspen Award for Art include artists Marilyn Minter (2010), Fred Tomaselli (2009), Ed Ruscha (2008), Jim Hodges (2007), Tony Feher (2006), and Richard Tuttle (2005).

Each year artCRUSH draws major art world figures from across the country and around the globe. Joining event chair Amy Phelan, the 2011 list of expected guests includes:
