I have Attended 6 Artposiums. I don't think I can pick a favorite. We have explored the topics Rivers, Mapping, Humor, Land Use, Sex, and Food. The presenters in depth experience with the topic and the inter-active nature of the Artposium is so inspiring that it's all I can think about for weeks afterwords. If you like TED then you will love an Artposium, and you won't pay an arm and a leg for it. I have also so enjoyed disovering Colorado. I've followed the 'Nomads" to Salida, Steamboat Springs, Denver, Durango, Delta County and Trinidad. I want to return to all of these new best destinations. The Colorado Art Ranch Residents have shown me the genuis, the inspiration and the drive that is behind the creation of great art. I can hardly wait until the next Artposium in Salida, Wade in the Water. This is more than education, this is truly raising the creative capital of Colorado and the world

One thing I'd also say is that...

This appreciation of Art, Science and Culture goes deeper than any experience I have yet had, and I truly believe it has made a difference in the way that I and others support and nurture creativity.
