Performing arts inspire, delight and engage people of all ages.
Sun Valley Museum of Art is committed to bringing world-class music, dance and film to the Wood River Valley, providing exceptional arts and cultural experiences for the community. These performances enhance the life of our community by offering patrons a view outside the valley and introducing them to new artists and genres as well as performers who are nationally and, in some cases, internationally renowned.
