Musicians, actors, dancers, authors and artists provide active engagement to valley students.
A fundamental part of Sun Valley Museum of Art's mission is to work in partnership with local schools to inspire students’ curiosity and develop their skills in improvisation, self-expression and critical thinking. Professional Artist Residencies are offered 2–5 times annually and impact thousands of students every year through classroom visits and performances.
The 2019–2020 Professional Artist Residencies are Supported By
