Arts & Culture

Sun Valley's art scene will catch you by surprise.  For such a small community in a remote part of the world, Sun Valley offers truly remarkable arts and culture opportunities.  ArtPlace recognized the area as one of the Top 12 Small Art Towns in the United States validating the quality, diversity and sheer volume of arts programming in the community.

Set amid one of the most accessible and pristine mountain backdrops, visitors and locals rub elbows in galleries, at theater performances, and on the lawn at live music performances frequently coming straight off a day of fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and the like.

Museums & Art Galleries
Sun Valley's art galleries are some of the most unique in the west. Artists from all over the world are represented in over 20 local galleries, and the art ranges from depictions of local beauty to unique sculpture to the avante-gard in all mediums.  Click here for more information on area galleries and museums and our local gallery walks.
