Voces Unidas is a work of art
Updated: Dec 10, 2020
Anderson Ranch Arts Center and artist Bunny Brunson have partnered to artistically showcase Voces Unidas. The banner is displayed at 312 E Hyman Avenue in Aspen. The installation will be at this location through the Spring of 2021. The art installation is part of a community-based public art initiative supported by the City of Aspen and Anderson Ranch Arts Center. Voces Unidas was one of seven local organizations highlighted in this project.
This initiative is exciting because it brings visibility to our mission; Latinas and Latinos are thriving, engaged, and leading in all our Roaring Fork Valley communities, including Pitkin County.
Bunny Burson is a world-class artist who resides in our community. Ms. Burson demonstrates her passion for the community in the banner that is centrally located in Aspen. The art installation could not have been done without Bunny Burson and the support of Anderson Ranch Arts Center. This multi-issue art program is a unique opportunity for Voces Unidas to showcase our mission to a wider audience.
Each of the seven art installations encourages exploration of topics that impact our community, such as immigration, politics, LGBTQ issues, and the environment. The art activations are in outdoor locations around the town of Aspen.
