Viet Thanh Nguyen Lecture

We want you to start a conversation.

The humanities have long been part of Sun Valley Museum of Art's legacy. Early in our organization’s history, we hosted the Institute of the American West symposia. Today we welcome Featured Speakers as part of the BIG IDEA projects and offer more casual and intimate Artist Talks & Conversations, Art History Lectures and lively Panel Discussions. SVMoA invites experts from diverse fields to share their knowledge with our community, stimulating dialogue in our homes, in the classroom and on throughout the community.

 

Sun Valley Museum of Art Featured Speaker Series

Sun Valley Museum of Art brings prominent speakers to the Wood River Valley to engage the community in lively, informative discussions about BIG IDEA themes.
