Ann Korologos Elected Board President of Anderson Ranch
Congratulations Anderson Ranch Arts Center. On December 14, 2011, Ann Korologos was elected Board President. Mrs. Korologos brings a wealth of experience to this cherished art institution.
Art is highly valued in the Roaring Fork Valley (Aspen to Glenwood Springs). We have a far higher concentration of galleries to population than most large cities. Add to that an expanding Aspen Art Museum, numerous art schools, art centers, dozens of cultural institutions, artists and collectors and you find a thriving art community. Mrs. Korologos is well aware of the importance of art to the valley and to the many art students attending Anderson Ranch classes. Her unique combination of board experience and her deep love and understanding of art will be an invaluable asset to the Ranch. Congratulations to both.
Ann Korologos, Board President
