The Sun Valley Center for the Arts has brought extraordinary art, music, theater and lectures to the valley for decades. Each year we check out their calendar of events as we plan our time in the valley.

I have enjoyed their art classes along with their wonderful Company of Fools theater productions throughout the year.

Thank you for bringing so much enjoyment and thought provoking topics to our valley.

It was so informal and inviting. The guy at the "desk" was so helpful and passionate about the area.

The Sun Valley Center for the arts appeals to everyone. It's worth a stay in Sun Valley just to enjoy the series.

I purchased tickets for 1 of 3 days for this big annual wine event. I was told to park in a special lot and take a shuttle 5 minutes before it started. I went early to scout things out and parked right away. There were some other people there and they let us in at 6PM. It was very hot and who wants to drink warm red wine? There were a very few table in the sun and none in the tent as promised. Then they let 1500 people in a tent all at once for food.

I asked a volunteer where the silent auction table was and she didn't know. I have been to this venue before, but this was the most disorganized and miscommunicated one yet.
You should do better next year. Try numbering tickets and letting maybe 100 people at a time go in for food. Have wine tents out of the sun and have tables and chairs out of the sun.

A really well curated small art museum. Excellent layout and they do really good community outreach.
