Giles Round & Casa Estudio YOU'RE IN ASPEN metal key chain with their signature metal charm is part of a newly commissioned series of merchandise exclusive to Aspen Art Museum that takes inspiration from the trademarks of Pop Art. Its bold and catchy slogan plays with recognizability and mundanity, nodding to the immediate, witty and gimmicky nature of popular culture items. These keychains are a must-have for Aspen visitors, locals, and distant fans alike. The image shows both sides of the same key chain.
