Sonja Hinrichsen


Sonja Hinrichsen, an artist based in the Bay Area, is in the valley for two weeks making snow drawings at Ashcroft as a creative intervention into the natural environment. CORE and the City of Aspen partnered on the Aspen Energy Challenge to inspire people to save as much energy as possible and wanted to keep up the participatory aspect of “stepping forward” on climate. These snow drawings are the first of a new series of environmental art projects they have planned. Sopris Sun editor Will Grandbois spoke with Sonja last weekend and shared this audio with KDNK. Participants can sign up for community snow drawing events that will take place at Ashcroft this weekend. More info at aspencore.org.
