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, theatre, 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.

From the Colour of Its Bloom: Camas Prairie

July 10 - September 10, 2020

From the Colour of Its Bloom: Camas Prairie considers a unique landscape in Southern Idaho that is home to multiple ecosystems and social histories, and is named for the Camas Lily, which blooms each spring and has traditionally been an important food staple for the Shoshone and Bannock people. The project will consist of an exhibition including 4 commissioned bodies of work, 1 outdoor sculptural installation in the city of Ketchum, a signage project in collaboration with the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes and a catalog. The exhibition will feature new artwork by Daniel Gordon, MK Guth, Anthony Hernandez and Sopheap Pich, and an essay by Judith Freeman.
