A good location, a great architect

Dear Editor:

I am writing in support of the new Aspen Art Museum location and design. The Galena Plaza location will draw more residents and visitors to our museum. The new building will be a cultural hub and additional landmark on this important public space.

It is thrilling that renowned architect Shigeru Ban has been selected to design the new building. His thoughtfulness in his designs is well suited for Aspen, just as Aspen, with our preserved history, environment and culture, is well suited for Ban. Bring it on!
