About the Idaho Falls Arts Council
Since its founding in 1990, the Idaho Falls Arts Council has committed to hosting an array of events, arts, performances, and venues to feature local and international talent within Idaho Falls and its surrounding areas. Now consisting of the Willard Arts Center, the historic Colonial Theater, the ARTitorium, and the Civic Center, these settings provide the means to annually raise $2.7 million toward the local community in the form of art galleries, 10 - 16 mainstage shows, 8 visual arts exhibitions, and community events all year long. The continued support of its volunteers and over 60 staff members accommodate the thousands of individuals who partake in the local arts community.

Quilt Heritage Museum: The History of Quilting in America
Opening reception with the artists Thursday, June 7, 5-8 p.m. at the Willard Arts Center in conjunction with Idaho Falls Gallery Walk. Reception supported by KISU, FM-91, Your Ear to the World
The Quilt Heritage Museum is a new organization in Idaho Falls that is dedicated to preserving quilts and sharing them with people who live here or visit Eastern Idaho. They believe that quilts, both old and new, connect us with our roots and tell others what is special about us. The Quilt Heritage Museum is working towards a permanent building in Idaho Falls to house and display quilts and to teach classes in the art of quilting. This exhibition documents the history of quilting in America from the mid-ninteeth centuy through today.
