As part of the 2015 Ideas Festival, the Aspen Institute invites you to the Aspen Mountain Gondola Plaza in Aspen, Colorado, to take part in the Inside Out Project.
The Inside Out Photobooth truck will make a portrait of each participant and print it as a poster to be immediately pasted on the grounds of the Gondola Plaza. All the posters and faces pasted up together become the single image, creating a collective project where EVERYONE becomes the art that will symbolize a simple idea: “Connecting Our Humanity.”
Aspen Institute founder Walter Paepcke believed that we could access our humanity by immersing ourselves in the humanities and arts, reflecting on the great works of the past and present, becoming "more self-aware, more self-correcting, and more self-fulfilling.” Ideas Festival aims toward the same goal. As part of the 2015 Festival come celebrate that passion by sharing this unique human experience.
Sunday, June 28th from 10 am to 2 pm
Monday, June 29th from 6 pm to 9 pm
Tuesday, June 30th from 6 pm to 9 pm
Aspen Mountain Gondola Plaza
601 E. Dean Street, Aspen, CO 81611 (corner of E. Durant and S. Hunter Streets)
