Abby Ruhman is a professional makeup artist with Alopecia Totalis who uses her body as a canvas to advocate for change when it comes to outdated beauty standards. Art and creativity are central to the Mountain Games: public art around town, live music happening nightly, the mountainous backdrop of Vail Valley, even photo booths set up for puppy portraits. Abby was a big part of that too, and in her conversation with Gabaccia Moreno - they talk at the Mountain Games about how Abby finds inspiration in nature, provides some tips for those who want to wear makeup into the outdoors, and give us the opportunity to contemplate the artistry we bring with us when we step outside.
