The City of Aspen launched a new website this week highlighting “modern era” local architecture. The 73 properties featured on the site were built post World War Two, mainly between the 1940s and 1970s. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen reports.

The mid-20th century was when Aspen went from being a quiet mountain town to an internationally known resort and the changes are reflected in the area’s architecture. Amy Simon is the Historic Preservation Officer with the City of Aspen.

A new art exhibit in Aspen features the work of one of Aspen’s most well-known artists: Herbert Bayer. Bayer designed the Aspen Institute’s 40-acre campus and worked on projects in town, including redesigning the exterior paint job on the Hotel Jerome.

The exhibit, at the Doerr-Hosier Center’s Resnick Gallery, features photography, paintings, tapestry, and a world atlas. David Floria is the exhibit’s curator.

"He always loved being in the mountains and he really gave up a lot of international fame and recognition by being here."

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) speaks with the Aspen Institute's Executive Vice President Elliot Gerson as part of the Hurst Lecture Series.

For grand ideas that might have taken years to develop, they were given ... five minutes to convince the panel.

Heavyweights in the security and intelligence world politely duked it out on stage yesterday. At the Aspen Institute’s annual security forum, the National Security Agency’s lead attorney defended a surveillance program. It one of those made public this summer by the now-famous former contractor Edward Snowden. On Thursday, longtime journalist and mediator Michael Isakoff got right to what has made it so controversial.
