Our mission is "to provoke and stimulate the imagination while opening hearts and minds through excellence in diverse arts programming."
We do this by offering exhibitions, lectures, classes and performing arts events that touch on issues relevant to our times and by bringing some of the world's most interesting artists, writers and thinkers to our small community in central Idaho.
We care about arts education and are committed to partnering with local schools to bring artists and authors into the schools. The Center's outreach programs supplement the school curriculum with in school classes and workshops, many of which are offered free of charge to area students and teachers.
We also sponsor a robust scholarship program that, since 1999, has given more than $341,000 to over 200 local students and educators.
