Returning for a 3-day run, the one-of-a-kind immersive artist takeover and art experience known as HaHa transforms Ah Haa into multiple interactive environments and participatory realms. Participation funds Ah Haa’s ability to provide high-quality, affordable art experiences for people of all ages, year-round.

“We are elated to bring the HAHA experience back for our community to enjoy! The enthusiasm for this event fuels Ah Haa’s mission to create joy and community through art,” says Executive Director, Martin Wolleson.

Hailed as “the most amazing art event in Telluride in over 40 years” co-curators, Christin Marcos and Kris Kwasniewski host 12 artists who will transform the 10,000 square-foot Silver Jack Building. Full of collaborative pop-ups, discoverable rooms, a curated gift shop, one-of-a-kind artworks and generative art-making, the HAHA offers an unmatched arts experience.

The HAHA artist lineup proudly includes Brandon Berkle, Filthy Luker, Flowers by Ella, Illegal Art, Paola Iberra, Telluride Dance Collective, Kathleen Morgan, Addi Somekh, Mike Stasiuk, Molly Sydnor, Rachel Williams and Tree Dawn Lighting.

“We’re thrilled to support 7 local artists and engage our community with 5 additional artists and collectives from around the world,” says Christin Marcos. “Namely, Illegal Art, a collective whose mission is to create participatory-based public art that inspires self-reflection, thought and human connection has conceived several projects to engage the greater community.

Founding members Otis Kriegel and Michael McDevitt will activate several installations in Telluride at Ah Haa, as well as auxiliary locations. Their work has been featured by National Public Radio, The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, Entertainment Weekly, The Public Art Review, Dwell Magazine, Ad Age and The Guardian.

Get lost in color, play in new environments, create from the heart, imbibe and enjoy all while supporting Ah Haa!

Participants can join in the fun on Friday or Saturday evenings from 5:30 pm-12 am with timed entry tickets. Kids (accompanied by an adult) can explore HAHA too, at Little Giggles on Sunday from 10 am-2 pm sponsored by Alpine Bank.
