“I couldn’t be more excited to start this new chapter at Sundance,” says Hoertig. “The resort and Sundance community have long held a special place in my heart. I remember growing up hearing stories of this magical mountain retreat as we would take our regular trips across the western states. My imagination was enthralled and my curiosity was ignited. This brand holds significant meaning for myself, artists, and nature lovers on a global scale, and I look forward to helping direct some of that attention towards the Art Studio and Gallery to maximize its impact and potential.”
