Vail ART Pass will commence this month celebrating a second season after a successful launch last summer. The Vail ART Pass gathers a community of individuals with an interest in the visual arts sponsored by Art in Public Places.

Over the past year, Vail ART Pass highlights included tours of renowned private art collections with receptions, a full day excursion to Carbondale with a tour of the Powers Art Center and the opportunity to meet artist James Surls at his studio. Members also enjoyed a tour of the new Betty Ford Alpine Education Center and Gardens with Executive Director Nicola Ripley. Members were also invited to signature events and receptions sponsored by Art in Public Places throughout the year.
