SVMoA Celebrating 50 Years of Creativity, Community & Connection

Celebrating 50 Years of Creativity, Community & Connection

"Art is the Highest Form of Hope"

Since 1971, we have served this community—a community that is curious about the world and eager for arts and cultural experiences. We’ve welcomed amazing artists and thinkers. We’ve provided generations of local students with a strong foundation in the arts. We’ve connected our community through creativity, conversation, and BIG IDEAS. 

We are so grateful to our many supporters as we reflect on our past 5o years and look ahead to 100 years.

SVMoA is open!

In the interest of our community’s health, SVMoA is adhering to CDC guidelines and the Governor of Idaho’s orders as we invite people to The Museum, classes and programs. We ask visitors to The Museum and class participants to wear masks and abide by social distancing recommendations. Anyone who feels ill or who lives with someone who is ill should stay at home. We will limit the number of people in all our program spaces to assure everyone is able to maintain a safe distance. Thank you for your cooperation.

We are working tirelessly to tailor our typical events-focused programming to the current climate in light of COVID-19 and will keep you updated on developments and changes. In the meantime, all of us at SVMoA will continue to channel our innermost creativity to bring the arts to YOU!
