Sun Valley Music Festival: Re-imagined 2020 Summer Season @ Sun Valley Pavilion
12:00 am
The Sun Valley Music Festival is going online this summer. Music Director Alasdair Neale is working with the musicians to create an entirely new season from scratch, to be broadcast each scheduled concert evening from the Festival’s website. This transformation will allow musicians to make music, faculty to teach, students to learn, and audiences to enjoy music all while following whatever guidelines for health and safety may be in place in July and August, as well as personal preferences. The reimagined season comes out of an abundance of caution with regard to in-person gatherings, not only in concert seating areas but also in the homes of housing hosts, the classrooms of music students, the stages of musicians, and the gathering and reception areas of patrons. The Pavilion interior will not be used this summer. However, conditions permitting, the Big Screen and sound system on the Lawn will be activated, allowing audiences to gather outside to enjoy each concert, with appropriate physical distancing. New repertoire, concert formats, and information on attending will be announced late June on the Festival website. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5I8fCMYpLI&feature=youtu.be Additional Details The Gala Concert is on – and free!  Audra McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Kelli O’Hara will create a special, ...

New Photographs by Tuck Fauntleroy @ Gilman Contemporary | Sun Valley | Idaho | United States
12:00 am
In his newest series “Elements”, Wyoming based photographer Tuck Fauntleroy continues his aerial exploration of seasonal change in the mountain west. “Elements” finds beauty in the formation of ice in mountain lakes in the late fall. With a minimal and painterly instinct, Fauntleroy captures the balance between negative and positive space, the texture of waterbed meeting jagged, broken ice. As with his previous series “Waterline,” Fauntleroy teeters on the edge of abstraction and landscape.
Yesterday's Future - Photographs by Maria Svarbova @ Gilman Contemporary | Sun Valley | Idaho | United States
12:00 am
(Sun Valley, Idaho—July 2020) Gilman Contemporary presents Maria Svarbova-Yesterday’s Future. The exhibition will feature photographs from Slovakian artist Maria Svarbova’s Swimming Pool series and will include work from the more recent Lost in the Valley. On view June 15- July 30. Renowned for her Swimming Pool series, which launched in 2014 and continued through 2018, Svarbova’s aesthetic has become instantly recognizable. Her style departs from traditional portraiture and focuses on experimentation with space, color, and atmosphere. Taking an interest in Socialist era architecture and public spaces, Maria transforms each scene with a modern freshness that highlights the depth and range of her creative palette. Moving beyond the swimming pool, Svarbova continued to apply her signature style to other locales. She released Lost in the Valley in 2018, where carefully composed figures continue to create thematic, dream-like scenes, but this time in Death Valley. Regardless of the location, each image holds a silent tension that is modern and fresh. In 2018 Svarbova was recognized as a Hasselblad Master. Her work has been featured in publications ranging from CNN and The Guardian to Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. Svarbova has published two books, Futuro Retro 2019 and Swimming Pool 2016, now on its ...

FREE Guided Tours: Garden of Infinite Compassion @ Sawtooth Botanical Garden
10:00 am
Welcome to the Garden of Infinite Compassion. This Garden was created in September 2005 to honor the visit of the Dalai Lama to the Wood River Valley. A contemplative garden, it is a place of both inner and outer repose; it is a place where we abandon the chatter of our minds and the distractions of our lives to enter the serenity of nature and find the calm of a quiet mind. The Rocks There are sixteen dominant rocks in the Garden which represent the sixteen Arhats, or disciples, of the Buddha.  The impressive rocks serve as silent sentinels but also serve to retain the soil as the slope drops six feet from the top of the stream to the bottom. The Serenity Pond The Serenity Pond features riparian plants while nearby a memorial bench sits in the aspen grove as a place for quiet contemplation.  In the center of the pond is a beautiful quartz crystal from Minas Gerais, Brazil.  The crystal’s tip was broken, most likely, by earth movement during its formation millions of years ago. Because the crystal was still forming when the break occurred, it began reforming or re-healing the tip. The tip that reformed however ...
