Artist Just Emerson’s bear sculpture was about to find a new place to hibernate outside of Carbondale, but Carbondale Arts and community members John Runne, Julie Naus and William and Patricia Hutzley came together to buy the sculpture to keep it in town. 

Art has always been a reflection of its time, highlighting the most urgent concerns of society and having the power to provoke social change. In the current climate crisis, where skepticism and avoidance are still in play, art holds the power to be a tool, a bridge, and a vehicle and a mediu…

Carolyn Leonhart loves harmony. She doesn’t think it’s in short supply in today’s musical landscape and will tell you succinctly why, if you ask. In jazz, there’s plenty to go around, as Leonhart’s performances tonight and tomorrow downstairs at The Little Nell will demonstrate.

I’ve retired from planning hut trips. That is to say, the kind planned months in advance with a group email chain longer than the approach to the hut; the trip that requires filling and refilling spots, adjusting Venmo requests, assigning ingredients and answering questions about slippers an…

It’s 6:15 a.m. on a recent Friday. The quiet morning darkness is punctuated by the clang of kibble dropping into a metal dog bowl. Bromley’s dog bowl. As he slowly munches away, I sip my coffee and take a deep breath as my day begins. A doozy awaits: Two hours of remote computer work, 30 min…

We are super excited for our new column, The Outsiders. Darcy and I are not writers per se, but we are adventurers at our core, and we love to be outside. We will do our best to discuss interesting thoughts and topics to encourage getting outside and to fuel a desire to explore and a drive f…

“Is he single? You know, that guy. You’ve seen him around town. Yeah, at the party the other night, and I’m pretty sure that was him riding up Lift 1A on Sunday. Who is he? Why don’t I know him? Can we change that?”

It’s after midnight, and we’re four hours and 8 to 10 courses into our “alchemist” tasting menu prepared by chef Mads Refslund as part of his pop-up residency at Hotel Jerome’s Prospect. The New York City-based Danish chef co-founded “Noma,” the Michelin-starred Copenhagen pilgrimage ranked …

I first came across the Aspen Art Museum by chance. I had just visited Aspen to ski and was wandering around the John Denver sanctuary when I discovered a wooden building with an open door. Once inside, I discovered a maze of colorful, movie set-like structures by Morgan Fisher. The impressi…

On the chairlift and around town, I often hear local skiers and snowboarders wonder aloud why they’d leave Aspen to ski elsewhere in Colorado. It’s not that they don’t travel to ski. The lucky few jet off to heli-ski or cat-ski in British Columbia or Alaska, others save up for their bucket-l…

The Aspen Ruff Life is pretty darn idyllic for both doggo and hooman, but it’s not always a walk in the dog park. The universally disliked vet visits, constant threat of wildlife run-ins, dog-on-dog—and sometimes owner-on-owner—kerfuffles, monthly fireworks (enough already) and what can seem…

Alia Joonas had a goal—to open a café by the time she was 30. A lofty ambition, to be sure, but she also had a plan. One that she refined over 10 years as she pursued a degree in hospitality at the exacting Vatel International Business School in Nimes, France, and gained valuable front-of-ho…
