© Sun Valley Center for the Arts
Sun Valley Center for the Arts is the Wood River Valley's oldest currently-operating arts organization, originally founded in 1971. The center operates two locations throughout the Wood River Valley region, including a primary facility in Ketchum that offers art galleries and a variety of public arts programming. It is one of less than five percent of arts and cultural institutions in the United States to receive prestigious accreditation status from the American Alliance of Museums. More than 25,000 people attend the center's annual exhibitions and events, which include temporary rotating exhibitions by Sun Valley and international artists, including Sebastião Salgado, Marie Watt, Martha Rosler, Joyce Kozloff, and George Nakashima. An annual lecture and performance series brings in top international names from the arts and culture world, including luminaries such as humorist David Sedaris, authors Junot Díaz and Louise Erdrich, and musicians Bonnie Raitt and Arlo Guthrie. Other annual special events include a wine auction and an August arts and crafts festival.
