An Unforgettable “Art Hike”

Over the past decade, collectors Jeanne & Mickey Klein have created an extraordinary art collection on their vast wooded property in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. In a rugged landscape of piñon trees and breathtaking views, the Kleins have commissioned some of the most prominent contemporary artists of our time to create significant new works in harmony with the land. Join Mickey and Jeanne as they take us on a morning hike to view this unique collection that features works by artists including Olafur Eliasson, Jason Middlebrook, and Paula Hayes, among others. The highlight of our hike will be visiting the many remarkable Andy Goldsworthy works that the artist has created on the Kleins’ land over the past 10 years.

Lunch will be served in the Klein house following our hike.
