How many of you knew that The Aspen Institute came into being because the President of the University of Chicago had a passion for Goethe and planned a one-off Goethe Festival in Aspen, way back in 1949?
Here’s a link that gives the fascinating history of the Aspen Institute and how it came about.
Meanwhile and back to the present day; the monsoon-like weather patterns haven’t put a damper on the cultural events that make Aspen the place to be this summer…and the John Denver Memorial Park looked lush and peaceful as we made our way to Theater Aspen – and what with Artcrush, the opening of the new Aspen Art Museum, the Aspen Music Festival, Art Aspen and the Jazz Aspen Music Festival – we’re positively spoiled for choice living here!
