Arts philanthropist Dennis Scholl loves the incongruity of emerging artists from Miami spending a month in Snowmass Village during the dead of winter.
“That kind of travel really expands your mind when it comes to your practice,” said Scholl, the president and CEO of Oolite Arts, one of the largest artist support organizations in South Florida.
On Sunday, 14 Miami-based artists will travel to Anderson Ranch Arts Center for a monthlong residency in partnership with Oolite Arts’ “Home and Away” program. For some of the artists, Sunday’s arrival will also mark their first time seeing snow, Scholl said. A longtime supporter of The Ranch, Scholl said the vast disparity in climate alone will present its own experience.
