Anderson Ranch Arts Center announced the lineup for its eight-week Featured Artists and Conversations Series on Monday. The lineup includes renowned artists McArthur Binion, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Lizzie Fitch, Trevor Pagien, Arlene Shechet, Alec Soth, Frank Stella, Hank Willis Thomas and Ryan Trecartin.

The series runs June 24 through Aug. 13 at Anderson Ranch in Snowmass Village. It also will include art collectors Dennis Scholl and Jennifer and David Stockman, curators Jeffrey Grove (Dallas Museum of Art) and Lisa Phillips (New Museum of Contemporary Art), along with Aspen Institute President and CEO Walter Isaacson.

“Our Featured Artists and Conversations Series is an incredibly engaging and stimulating highlight of the summer in Aspen,” Nancy Wilhelms, executive director of Anderson Ranch, said in a statement. “Throughout our history, the ranch has served as a connector for deeper understanding of contemporary art and art making. This summer is no exception as we bring some of the most exciting artists, critics and collectors to Anderson Ranch to share their talents and ideas with the Aspen community and the art world at large.”

In recent years, the series has hosted luminaries such as Theaster Gates (2014), Marina Abramovic (2013) and Kara Walker (2012).

The events are free, though reservations are required.
