Hemingway House Sessions

A collaborative project connecting local history with creative performance

The Hemingway House Sessions are a collaboration between the Sun Valley Museum of Art and The Community Library to connect visiting artists to our local history and an iconic writer in an intimate setting inspired by views of the Big Wood River and Idaho mountains. Visiting artists are invited to respond to this creative space where Ernest Hemingway sought sanctuary in the last years of his life.


The Community Library

The Community Library is a privately funded, public library located in Ketchum, Idaho. As part of its Center for Regional History, it stewards a Hemingway collection and manages the Hemingway House and Preserve. The private residence is home to a writer-in-residence program.
