Sun Valley Museum of art is making sure that people in the Wood River Valley are given plenty of chances to discover a love for the arts at all ages. We invite you to be a part of this important work. We all know that Sun Valley Wine Auction is a weekend filled with great food, fabulous entertainment and, of course, incredible wines. But tonight let’s all remember that it’s also about art and the impact that it makes in our schools and in our community.

Raise your paddle and invest in a better future for our community. This is where it really matters—raising essential funds for Sun Valley Museum of Art’s educational outreach and scholarship programs.

SVMoA provides opportunities for everyone in our community to grow and explore, whether through a pottery class, a writing workshop, a theatrical performance or an outdoor concert. Kids exposed to the arts are more likely to stay in school. Arts education is proven to increase graduation rates and encourages higher learning. Art engages students in learning, teaches them about empathy, cultivates confidence and promotes critical thinking. These are important and essential life skills.

Through generous support from donors like you, Sun Valley Museum of Art has helped put Sun Valley on the map for the arts. Your involvment makes the work that the Museum is doing possible. You can see the immediate results of your generosity in the eyes and smiles of our community. You are helping to create amazing cultural opportunities and learning experiences that will enrich their lives forever.
