Elitism at its worst
Dear Editor:I teach art at Basalt Elementary School. I am so outraged after reading this article in Wednesday’s paper. The Aspen Art Museum is severing its link to the elementary schools from Aspen to Parachute and beyond! By discontinuing the Valley Kids Show, the message being set here is “elementary school art just not important.” I have always enjoyed participating in the Valley Kids show and have sent hundreds of my K-4 children’s art up to the museum in the spring. My third-graders looked forward to designing a Valley Kids poster for the museum. This shows a lack of sensitivity for the whole community. This is an example of elitism in art at its finest.Lois AlvarezArt specialist, BES
