A Busy Summer For The Sun Valley Center for the Arts 

It seems that the Sun Valley Center for the Arts is busy expanding, relocating and regrouping these days.

First, the SVCA has decided to build a new Ketchum facility, and has chosen Tom Kundig of Seattle-based Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects, to design the building. Kundig has done other work in Idaho, including designing a residence in the Wood River Valley.

The proposed new site is on a portion of the upcoming Simplot Subdivision (at Second Avenue and Fourth Street), pending the subdivision's approval by the city council. The SVCA has spent the last several years looking for a new, roomier home.

Meanwhile, over in Hailey, the SVCA has acquired the Hailey Cultural Center/Roberta McKercher House as part of a mission to expand arts programming into Hailey and southern Blaine County.

Three years ago, the SVCA determined that it needed space in Hailey in order to fulfill its mission to "stimulate and provoke the imagination" through a variety of arts programs. Until acquiring the Hailey Cultural Center, the SVCA was unable to find an appropriate space for fulfilling their mission. The new space will help the SVCA achieve the goals of creating a space where people can experience the arts, arts education and free arts programming.
