What's the BIG IDEA?

The Arts Bring Us Together in Conversation.

SVMoA takes a unique multidisciplinary approach to programming. Three or four times annually BIG IDEA projects ask timely questions and investigate them through art, music, conversation, and workshops. We believe that by engaging with art through a variety of mediums, we can transform our understanding not only of the arts, but also of history, culture, place, and even ourselves. You can participate in a single event or go deeper, exploring the idea through different lenses.

Dams: Reservoirs, Reclamation, Renewal

Agosto 26 - Diciembre 30, 2022

Coinciding with renewed dialogue about the possibility of breaching dams throughout the Columbia River Basin, this BIG IDEA project offers a con-versation about the impact of dams on Idaho and the American West. For more than a century, dams have shaped Idaho’s landscapes, ecosystems and economies. At this historic moment, the project considers the history of damming in the Pacific Northwest, the effects of dams on the region, and a reimagined future for rivers and the life dependent on them in the American West.
