Alpine Artist Collective

Formerly Claire Kendall Creative Projects

Human / Nature

New Year, New Us

Claire Kendall Creative Projects is now Alpine Artist Collective! We felt that this name fit better with who we are as a collaborative arts organization. But don’t worry, Claire’s not going anywhere and we are still the same spunky group of artists that we’ve always been!

Our Mission

is to connect humans and nature through art.

Who we are

We are a multidisciplinary team of artists, united by our shared love of the natural world. We are dancers, musicians, poets, painters, puppeteers, performers, creators, designers, educators, advocates, and more.

Created in collaboration with Authentic:Grooves

An exploration of the tundra and high alpine ecosystems, which will both be significantly impacted by climate change. The purpose of this work is to reframe the misconception that these are cold, frozen, lifeless places disconnected from human existence. On the contrary, these environments are teeming with life, in constant motion, and never-ending transition–from moving rocks and shifting glaciers to curious pikas burrowing deep in the snow. Our goal is to have the audience walk away with a deeper connection to the tundra, a newfound appreciation of how climate change in the mountains will affect us down here in the front range, and a better understanding of why we should protect this ecosystem.
