Telluride Arts: Art + Architecture, Prize Winners

Telluride Arts: Art + Architecture, Prize Winners

Last weekend, July 15 – July 16, Telluride Arts’ Telluride Art + Architecture Weekend celebrated its fifth year – and it was a sold-out event.


Out of 10 creative teams, each a stop on the Weekend’ Tour, one took home the Audience Choice Prize of $3,000.

There were also three juried prizes to individual artists who wowed our team of judges, plus a Mountain Living Editor’s Choice Prize, awarded to the home with the most creative and functional architecture, craftsmanship, and interior design.

In cased you missed the fun, Telluride Art + Architecture Weekend is the ultimate home tour, Telluride Style. Over the course of two days, 10 creative teams of architects, chefs, artists, and designers collaborated to provide an intimate experience for guests. Each team presented at a venue on the tour, which featured food and wine tastings prepared by local chefs, art exhibits, live music, artist talks, tours with the architects and designers, and surprises at each stop.

This years’ teams included a Peter Sante home, a One Architects project, the Sheridan Opera House, two Narcis Tudor condos, Teepeetopia in Elks park, LuxWest Interiors designs, the 300 Elks penthouse, a Luke Trujillo home, and a Shift Architects home.

Tour goers experienced small bites from all of our favorite local chefs, a spiritual experience at Teepeetopia, freshly shaken cocktails by Gypsy Bar Craft, the soothing sounds of DJ Unicorn Boss amidst a magical installation by New Leaf Designs and Stephanie Morgan Rogers, the magical world of Kevin Box, guest designers Fin Art, a ski run inspired hallway, and a rooftop party on one of the hippest decks in town where the Maison Veuve Clicquot and tequila sunrises were a plenty.

An embarrassment of riches.

So who won?

This year, the Audience Choice Team Prize went to team 430 Music Man, a home designed by Luke Trujillo of Trulina Architects, small bites by Patrick Laguens, and an art installation by guest artist Kevin Box.

The $1000 Individual Juried prize went to Luke Trujillo for the same outstanding project; the runner up $500 prizes went to Flair Robinson for her fiber art installation in the “Waaay Out West” Tipi and to Angelee Aurillo for her mouth-watering Elk bite and shortbread dessert. 

Lastly, the Mountain Living Editor’s Choice award went to Shift Architects for their work on 411 West Colorado, for their beautiful, elegant, and functional design. 

Telluride Arts would like to thank all of its sponsors and everyone who came out to enjoy the tour.

The Telluride Arts District follows the boundaries of the Town, and contains a remarkable concentration of arts and cultural activity that engages artists from around the region and across the globe.
