…following quote taken from the Montclair Art Museum website.  “The structure that housed the former Aspen Art Museum on North Mill Street was originally built in 1888 for the Hunter Creek Power Plant. Aspen was the first city west of the Mississippi to have streetlights powered by hydroelectric energy—generated by the power plant—although it was initially developed to service the mining operations in the city…

The first year three years of programming featured a wide range of exhibitions including one-person shows by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg. Then in 1984, the board approved a name change to the Aspen Art Museum to better reflect the institution’s curatorial ambitions, and the following summer formed its National Council.”
