Sun Valley Museum of Art Has Canceled All Public Gatherings
In order to act collectively to slow the spread of COVID-19, Sun Valley Museum of Art (SVMoA) and Company of Fools (CoF), have opted to cancel all organized public gatherings (concerts, openings, classes) through Saturday, April 18. SVMoA's top priority is the health and well-being of the Wood River Valley community.
The Museum and Company of Fools will remain closed to the public and will continue to re-evaluate and make any necessary adjustments as events develop. The Museum's newest exhibition, Free Play which was scheduled to open Friday, March 20th will open as soon as the threat from Covid 19 has passed, following CDC guidelines.
"These are challenging times, particularly for local nonprofit organizations who are always pushing to do as much as they can on shoe string budgets. Choosing to cancel ticketed events, annual festivals and fundraisers are difficult choices for these organizations," said Christine Davis-Jeffers, Executive Director at Sun Valley Museum of Art. "This community has always done an incredible job of taking care of one another. As we move through this moment please consider the organizations that make this community the rich, vibrant, stimulating place that it is and consider donating the value of your ticket or event pass back to the presenting organizations or send a little extra to those organizations who have had to cancel annual fundraisers. If we all lean in, we can all carry each other."
