The Center’s main exhibition space and staff offices are located in Ketchum at the corner of Washington Avenue and Fifth Street, two blocks west of Main Street. Admission to The Center gallery is always free.

Trained volunteer guides, known as docents, conduct free tours every Tuesday at 2pm. The Center generally schedules an evening tour for each exhibition and can arrange tours by appointment, in English or Spanish. Call 208.726.9491 ex 10 in advance of your visit to arrange a tour.

The Center hosts six visual arts exhibitions a year. Most Center exhibitions are curated by Center staff, though The Center does on occasion collaborate with guest curators or display traveling exhibitions. Exhibitions focus on contemporary art but many exhibitions also include a historical component as well. Most exhibitions are part of multidisciplinary projects that explore ideas or concepts relevant to our times and of interest to our community. Multidisciplinary projects include visual arts exhibitions, music and dance performances, family events and talks leading thinkers and authors.

The Center stays open until 8 pm during the monthly Gallery Walks sponsored by the Sun Valley Gallery Association. Start your gallery walk at The Center with wine and hors d’oeuvres from 5:30 to 6:30pm-It’s the First Place to Be! Upcoming Gallery Walks.

Small lectures, performances and some classes are also held at our Ketchum facility.

The Sun Valley Center for the Arts is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. Just 5% of all museums in the US (including four other museums in Idaho) earn AAM accreditation.
