The Telluride Art + Architecture Weekend kindles artist collaboration across disciplines bringing architects, artists, designers and chefs together to push the boundaries of creative expression in the Telluride Arts District. Working as teams, local and visiting artists collaborate with architects, designers and local venues to create unique experiences that provide a counterpoint to the space they occupy. Weekend ticket holders will vote for an Audience Choice prize and a $5,000 cash award to the winning artist collaboration.

In addition to the tour, there are four special events available to ticket holders:

On Tuesday, July 15 there is a special Twenty(by)Telluride: Art + Architecture edition that will feature local artists, designers and chefs.

To kick off the weekend, on Saturday morning from 10am-11am, the dynamic husband and wife team, Virginia San Fratello and Ronald Rael of Rael San Fratello, will be offering a lecture on Emerging Objects, their cutting edge 3-D printing project, and other projects from their atelier.

On Sunday morning, 10am-11am, local historian Ashley Boling will provide a Historic Walking Tour.

Finally, a closing party and awards will be held from 5-6pm on Sunday.
