Refugees in Idaho: Photography and Textiles 

When: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 1-5 p.m. and Wed., Dec. 14, 4:30-6:30 p.m. Continues through Jan. 7 2017
Price: FREE

Head over to The Community Library’s Sun Valley Museum of History for two exhibitions that provide compelling representations of the refugee experiences in Idaho. Refugee Portrait Project by photographer Ken Bingham moves the viewer to make a human-to-human connection through familiarity of features, expression and gaze, unmediated by other identifying information. This Is My Home Now: Narrative Textiles from Idaho Newcomers, brought to the Wood River Valley by the Idaho Commission on the Arts, is an exhibit of quilts made by refugees newly settled in Boise through the Artisans for Hope. Accompanying each quilt is a personal descriptive text about the composition and the artist’s journey. Wednesday-Saturday through Jan. 7.
