All Week
‘We The People’ – Exhibition
9AM to 5PM / The Center / Ketchum
Sun Valley Center for the Arts will showcase its exhibition “We the People: Protest and Patriotism” throughout the week. As citizens in a representative democracy, Americans rely on elected officials to make legislation and policy and to act in the United States’ best interests domestically and internationally. But from the time of its founding, the U.S. has also been a nation that embraces the idea of participatory democracy.
“We the People: Protest and Patriotism” explores the many ways Americans seeking to affect social and political change can take action. Beyond exercising one’s right to vote, public acts of protest have long shaped America’s history, bringing people together to speak out against things like “taxation without representation,” the institution of slavery or the Vietnam War, and in favor of voting rights for women, expanded protections for workers, or civil rights for African-Americans and members of the LGBTQ community.
The Center’s visual arts exhibition offers historical artifacts and works that illuminate the many ways American citizens participate in the U.S. democracy. The visual arts exhibition will be on view through Dec. 14. For more information visit or call (208) 726-9491.
