We are delighted that you are considering joining us at the 41st annual Sun Valley Museum of Art Wine Auction. Recognizing that there are many worthy causes and exciting places to visit, we appreciate that you are considering partaking in the wonderful attractions of the world-famous Sun Valley area and supporting the vital cultural experiences and arts education enabled by Sun Valley Museum of Art.

 

​We fell in love with the Wood River Valley the first time we visited in 2008—and bought a house on our third day here! Each year thereafter we spent more time in the valley and, four years ago, made Sun Valley our primary residence. Little did we know that the world would soon experience a once-in-a-century pandemic and thousands of others would also discover how idyllic life is here. 

​One of the things that makes this rural corner of America more complete and enlightening for everyone who visits or lives here is SVMoA. 

It is the leading arts educator and producer of cultural programs in the valley—in the visual arts, performing arts, humanities and education—reaching both a wide range of adults and every student in the county through its programs. Moreover, The Museum, through its BIG IDEA programming, dares to ask tough questions and challenges its audiences to open their minds, think creatively and potentially challenge the status quo—all without a preconceived position other than that each of us is a worthy individual with our own viewpoints.

 

​The Sun Valley Wine Auction provides half the annual operating budget for The Museum—and for that our entire community thanks you, our very generous patrons and contributors. In return, we hope to produce a fun, educational, and unique experience for you, our guests. We invite you to enjoy the unspoiled outdoors of our beautiful surroundings, the enhanced culinary and educational components of this year’s Wine Auction, and the artisanal products of our treasured vintners. As well as the incredible friendliness of our community.

​WELCOME. ENJOY. BE KIND.

MAKE NEW FRIENDS. GIVE BACK.

We hope you return for many years or— perhaps—join us as grateful residents!

THANK YOU.
