Former Wheeler Board Vice Chairperson Richie Cohen died on July 3, 2017.  Richie was a member of the Wheeler board from the mid 1980’s until his death. His contributions to the Wheeler Opera House and the arts community of Aspen were innumerable, including his support of the Wheeler Real Estate Transfer Tax creation and subsequent renewals, which will continue to support the arts community long into the future.

All meetings of the Board are open to the public. Upcoming meetings are published on the calendar.
