The Wheeler Opera House is proud to announce that we will be granting $350,000 to local Aspen arts groups this year. Of the total grant amount, $100,000 comes directly from the Wheeler Real Estate Transfer Tax. The remaining amount is generated from Wheeler revenue sources such as fees and lease space rent. The Wheeler is proud to support the arts in Aspen. We look forward to the many contributions of these arts groups throughout the year.
