Arts & Culture
Sun Valley is one of America’s top small towns for art. With more than a dozen galleries, several live theater companies, the lauded Writers' Conference, the Sun Valley Film Festival, free summer symphony concerts in the Sun Valley Pavilion, and one of the West’s premier nonprofit arts organizations, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, Sun Valley packs an enormous cultural punch for its size.
Art Galleries & Museums
Sun Valley, America’s first destination ski resort, is the place where legends and lore collide. But don’t think being rich in history means it’s a wasteland of dust, rust and relics. One glimpse at the thriving art scene, with galleries and exhibitions that can (and do) hold their own against their contemporaries in Manhattan, Berlin, London or Los Angeles, will assure you that Sun Valley’s arts and culture scene is alive and very much of-the-now.
Experience a wide variety of theater, ranging from mini ballerinas performing the Nutcracker to full-fledged stage productions of 'Our Town' and the 'Glass Menagerie'.
